Kirk,
Presentation is the responsibility of the integration with the host
language.
That being said, XHTML+XForms is quite important to a lot of people (!)
and supporting the layout freedom and conventions that are required
there is a task for which XForms should be expected to give support.
However, I believe that at this point it's up to the implementors and
integrators to come back to the WG (as Aaron has done for Mozilla's
XForms implementation) to point out obstacles along the way.

CSS is starting point for many answers about positioning and appearance,
but since XForms can't require CSS, it can't be the only solution.
Also, CSS3 would offer a number of features directly available to XForms
users, but it's not imlemented and is still in draft form.  So, answers
to layout and presentation questions may come in form other than CSS,
even for XHTML integration.  It is with a mind to discussing these
questions that I believe Aaron brought the issue up.  

Leigh.
