Joern,

We agree with your use case, and note that we already have a proposed 
feature for XForms 1.2, with a slightly different expression.

Please see the current proposal at 
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/wiki/Submission_Embedding

Briefly, we propose the new attribute submission/@target.  For example, 
in your use case of a new window in an XHTML+XForms integration, the 
attribute value would be XHTML name "_blank" :

  <submission replace="all" target="_blank" ... />

As with all XForms 1.2 proposed features, we seek feedback on 
experimental implementations.  There is already one implementation, 
cited in the feature proposal.

Please see our discussion at

Leigh.
