Perhaps you can use RECORD's NAME attribute in conjunction with the 
SUBMIT element's NAMELIST, METHOD=POST, and ENCTYPE="multipart/form-data"?

Speaking of omissions in VoiceXML drafts, I notice that Lernout & 
Hauspie left endpointing (also called segmentation and alignment) 
out of the so-called semantic interpretation working draft:


even though they produce a product to accomplish the required task.

Anyway, with the large number of low-cost and no-cost recognition 
systems presently available, a handful of which have endpointing 
features built-in, this sorry state of affars is surmountable.  
However, VoiceXML is presently incapable of the task.

Endpointing is essential to perform the operations described on:
