I believe in XForms 1.1 you can do this, to implement post/redirect/get:

<xf:submission replace="instance" instance='foo' ... >
   <xf:load ev:event="xforms-submit-done" resource="instance('foo')/location" if="instance('foo')/location" />

In XForms 1.0 you needed to listen for xforms-enabled (or chiba-state-changed) on an xf:output bound to the location node, and it wasn't as reliable across implementations.

It may also work to do this (even in xsltforms, though I haven't checked)

<xf:submission replace="instance" instance='foo' ... >
   <xf:send ev:event="xforms-submit-done" submission="myget" />
<xf:submission id="myget" ... />

That's not right. In Chiba we support submission/@replace="all".  
Though it comes to the price of having an additional URI param on the resulting URL. On the other hand you can always substitute a replace all with a combination of submission and load.
