Thomas,

That looks pretty good. I am not sure in what context exactly this  
proposal is made, but one concern I have relates to the lack of repeat  
in this example: some of the tricky aspects we discussed in the group  
in the past related to the way we would handle repeats with the  
simplified syntax. In particular, repeats have led us to suggest a  
notation using XPath variables (which had other benefits, such as  
providing more location independence for the controls). Do you have a  
plan of producing an example using repeats then?
