Hi Chris,

I was also reviewing the deliverables and milestones for the working group 
and again noticed that the disconnect between them has not been addressed.

The deliverables include XForms 1.2, but the milestones table contains no 
mention of it.

I originally thought it best to have a row of dates added for XForms 1.2, 
but frankly, I do not think that the working group can do more than 1.1, 
2.0 and transitional in the time alloted.  To a large extent, I would 
guess that XForms transitional *is* 1.2.

Perhaps it is best to simply consolidate the two, e.g. XForms 
Transitional/1.2, or if that is not possible, then just go with XForms 
Transitional because it will already be clear that any changes to a full 
XForms processor that are needed to help build XForms transitional will 
just implicitly happen and will have to be versioned up from 1.1 anyway.
