I think that any XForms implementation allows you to style controls. I  
wouldn't think that this should be a blocker.

There is a non-normative section in XForms about styling:

   http://www.w3.org/TR/xforms11/#style

Not all implementations support these pseudo-classes, but those have  
other ways to do it (with actual CSS classes, for example). But the  
bottom line is that it shouldn't be harder to style things with XForms  
than it is with regular HTML forms.

On thing to note in your example: I notice that your <xforms:model>  
element is under the HTML <body>. The accepted practice is to put  
<xforms:model> within the HTML <head> element.
