I believe that XSL-FO should also be part of SVG. If both SVG and XSL-FO had
schema, it would be possible to import XSL-FO into SVG. This would permit
the use of a common set of formatting objects. If XSL had a schema, it would
then be possible to create a single object hierarchy, which could also be
used with CSS3. XML schemas can eventually provide a single, well engineered
object hierarchy for all of XML. DTDs are unsuitable for this purpose. Any
steps in the direction of a single object hierarchy would help to retard the
development of inconsistencies and needless duplications of the XML
languages and other artifacts.

 

The use of XFORMS inside of SVG would be greatly helped if a complete
example that worked with FormsPlayer (http://www.formsplayer.com/) were
created. 

 

Yours respectfully
