The editor's draft of XForms 1.1 has been updated at 
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/specs/XForms1.1/index-diff.html

The working group found that the xforms-link-error has not been 
implemented and that link traversal failures in such cases, e.g. a failed 
load, are presented to the user in implementation-specific means. 

The specification was changed to indicate that the user would be informed 
of the link failure by implementation-specific means, rather than by an 
xforms-link-error.

There was no schema change.

However, the section on xforms-version-exception was moved into the place 
of the xforms-link-error.

This had the good editorial side-effect of putting all exceptions before 
errors, but the actual reason for the move is that it minimized section 
renumbering.

The test suite and the implementation reports change by moving the 
xforms-version-exception results only.
