Yes, this is one of many flaws regarding scripting, and one reason I 
often prefer declarative methods.  A declarative solutions can be 
optimized for efficiency, more secure by design (allowing only specific 
kinds of functionality that are known to be secure), and is usually much 
easier to author (as in your example, forms vs. XHR script); on the down 
side, it can be less flexible, and that's where script can step in... 
but your use case is reasonable, and a declarative solution would be good.

We did try to get something like this passed through, a technology 
called Remote Events for XML (REX) [1], but it ran into some complications.

Unfortunately, this is the situation we're in now.

You misunderstood.  I wasn't advocating, in this case, a compound 
document.  I was recommending that you use plain HTML for now, if your 
primary need is for a declarative forms solution.
