I still think it's wrong that Mozilla Firefox XForms extension is saying
it accepts text/html for instance/@src.

John,

This seems like a really good solution, as it avoids the duplicating of 
submission functionality into the instance element which I was worried 
about. It also shows how submission is somewhat of a high-level wrapper 
for an XmlHttpRequest object which isn't explicitly tied to the HTTP 
protocol...
