Hi,

I noticed that the 1.1 spec and 1.0 Third Edition spec have made the 
@nodeset attribute on xf:bind optional.  But no mention is made as to 
what the default bound nodeset is when xf:bind is an outer bind. 
Consider the below testcase and please answer these questions:

1) What node will the calculate MIP be applied to?
2) What should the submitted instance document look like?

Mozilla, Sidewinder, and X-Smiles all have different answers and Orbeon 
sandbox can't even load the form so I'm more than a little curious.

           <xforms:bind id="binddata"
                        calculate="now()"/>
           <xforms:submission id="submitInfo"
                              method="post"
           action="http://www.xformstest.org/cgi-bin/echo.sh" />
       </xforms:model>
     </head>
     <body>
       <h2>I think that the submission should show the current date and
           time along with the value node and its value.
       </h2>
       <h3>Uses now() and bind w/o nodeset attribute</h3><br/>
       <xforms:submit submission="submitInfo">
         <xforms:label>Echo instance data</xforms:label>
       </xforms:submit>
     </body>
</html>

Any help appreciated.  Thanks,
