Francisco,

Model-driven switch was a general goal for XForms, but was not a
requirement for the 1.0 version of XForms.  Late in XForms 1.0 WD stage,
h we did find some means to achieve the effects in XForms 1.0 using
group relevance and using XPath predicates, but felt it was too late to
design in a feature for model-driven switch without any experience in
implementation and use.

Based on the experience with XForms 1.0, we believe we have sufficient
knowledge now to design something that will provide a good combination
of flexibility and expressive power.

The current ideas are captured at
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/wiki/Model-based_switching_with_switch
and we would welcome your evaluation and continued involvement in this
proposal as it progresses.

Leigh.

"We discussed issues such as model-driven switch", I think I showed
that such enhencement would greatly enable work flow within XForms.
Certain members of the WG seemed to object vehmently then!

But never to late
