The reason that the 'or' xpath statement wasn't working was because of 
all of the whitespace and new line characters that you have inside the 
xf:value elements.  If you pare them down to <xf:value>ewbrl</xf:value>, 
for example, it works.  I honestly don't remember my xforms and xpath 
well enough to know if this is a bug or not.  If someone can cite the 
appropriate spec section, I'll open a bug on it.

I will open a bug on the multiple relevant property definitions not 
causing a xforms-binding-exception.  However, I need someone from the 
xforms WG to tell us what the target of the xforms-binding-exception 
should be in this case.  Should it be the xf:bind that tries to add the 
already present model item property?  Or should it be someplace more 
centric like the model that contains the bind?
