I have a question. To what extent is XForms 
compatible/incompatible/agnostic about XML and Unicode standards for 
internationalization metadata? In particular, I'm curious about:

1. The xml:lang attribute
2. Unicode bidirectional marks
3. Ruby text


Does XForms allow any or all of these? Prohibit any or all of these? 
Leave it up to the higher level format in which the XForm is embedded 
such as XHTML 2 or OpenDocument? or something else?

I couldn't find any mention of these topics in the specs.
