Right, so you've in effect chosen option 2, which is to move away from the
standard. That's fine, and given option 1 ("wait for 2 years") I don't blame

However, the whole point of my emails was not about how to implement these
things, but how to make them available today, *without* deviating from
standards, and one way to do that is to implement new XForms features by
making use of other XForms features.

By the way, that is why Leigh's point about the onus being on implementers
to represent these things as conveniently as possible doesn't help--the
features are 'invoked' via the mark-up, and it is the mark-up which needs to
change, but it is determined by the Working Group, not the implementer.
