We accept the change to E17 as: A binding element is "outermost" if the element has no ancestor binding elements. If the outermost binding element is contained by a model element, then the context node for the element is the top-level document element node of the default instance of the containing model.

When a form control goes from enabled to disabled, whether by relevance or node disappearance, we send xforms-disabled. When a form control goes from disabled to enabled, whether by relevance or node appearance (through any means including but not necessarily limited to insert, submission instance replacements, or getInstance() based scripted DOM mutation), the markup-based event handlers are hooked up and the following events are sent: xforms-enabled, xforms-value-changed, one of xforms-valid or xforms-invalid, one of xforms-readonly or xforms-readwrite, one of xforms-required or xforms-optional, one of xforms-in-range or xforms-out-of-range. 2006-11-17 Resolution 2006-11-17.1
We add this to group: "All content elements (e.g. form controls, groups, switches, repeats and host language content) within a non-relevant group are handled as non-relevant. When a group becomes non-relevant, it must receive event xforms-disabled and then the XForms action handlers that are listening for events on the non-relevant group must be disabled. When a non-relevant group changes to being relevant, the XForms action handlers that listen for events on the group must become enabled and then the group must receive the event xforms-enabled." 2006-11-17 Resolution 2006-11-17.2

We cannot move xforms:dayTimeDuration and xforms:yearMonthDuration to the xs:types from XQuery 1.0 / XSLT 2.0 because XForms 1.1 is based on XML Schema 1.0 and XPath 1.0. 2007-06-13 Resolution 2007-06-13.8
We change xsd:schema and children to xs:schema and children, and add a definition of the xs:namespace, but leave occurrences the definition xmlns:xsd="" and the uses on datatypes, because that's what XML Schema Part 0 does. Implementors will already note that XML Schema requires handling of type definitions in the xmlns:xsd="" namespace without special instruction from XForms. 2007-06-13 Resolution 2007-06-13.9
We agree that XForms-specific procedures should be harmonized with XPath 2.0 functions library where possible. 2007-06-13 Resolution 2007-06-13.10
We change the Luhn reference from ISO/IEC 7912-1 to expired patent "U.S. PATENT 2,950,048 Computer for Verifying Numbers.", H.P. Luhn. We change terminology from "Luhn formula" to "Luhn algorithm" to make finding the Wikipedia entry easy. We retain "Luhn function" for now. 2007-06-13 Resolution 2007-06-13.11
We do not break into groups (yet). 2007-06-13 Resolution 2007-06-13.12
We remove the XForms 1.0 requirements and do not add XForms 1.1. 2007-06-13 Resolution 2007-06-13.13
An ITS rule file is not a normative part of the recommendation and we would be happy to provide some meeting time to help I18N WG create it, but we do not have the resources to create it. 2007-06-13 Resolution 2007-06-13.14
We accept the correction to XForms and SVG Example by removing the accent mark, as the word "latte" is Italian, not French, so it's "latte" with no accent. 2007-06-13 Resolution 2007-06-13.15
We re-write and simplify G.1 XForms in XHTML to be in one language, and move to XHTML1. 2007-06-13 Resolution 2007-06-13.16 On point 1, we made the change to section 6.2.1. So on point 2 we decided it was already in agreement; on point 3, the same instance data outside of an XForms processor might have xsi:schemaLocation processing on, but it is indeed off in XForms. 2007-06-14 Resolution 2007-06-14.1
On We accept Erik Bruchez's request to clarify that the empty string is returned by insert event binding if none is specified. We also ask for clarification on the feature and its use case, because in general, it is not possible for the form author to resolve the value without knowing the context and without knowing whether the binding is a bind IDREF or an XPath expression. 2007-06-14 Resolution 2007-06-14.2
For we change 6a and 6b to say that the insert location is the attribute list of the insert location node's parent element. 2007-06-14 Resolution 2007-06-14.3
For we change to error-information with hyphen. 2007-06-14 Resolution 2007-06-14.4
For XPath 2.0 features, though valuable, are not in scope of the XForms 1.1 requirements, so we accept this as for XForms 1.2 future features. 2007-06-14 Resolution 2007-06-14.5
For , we change section 3.3.1 to default model version to empty, and define empty to mean that the processor gets to choose the version. If no version chosen is available, the xforms-version-exception is dispatched to the default model. The declaration on the default model is used to make the choice. Later models may offer declarations of model version but xforms-version-exception is dispatched to the default model if their declarations are incompatible with the version chosen. 2007-06-14 Resolution 2007-06-14.6
For, and, they all accept empty; we are fixing the confusing text. 2007-06-14 Action 2007-06-14.13 Resolution 2007-06-14.7
For , we remove the asterisks and the table of xsd types and replace it with mention of XSD types, no indication of what XForms 1.0 Basic Profile might or might not do, and a table of xforms-namespace datatypes. 2007-06-14 Resolution 2007-06-14.8
For We approve. 2007-06-14 Action 2007-06-14.14 Resolution 2007-06-14.9
For we respond that we accept and will be clearer, but there is something in section 6 already. 2007-06-14 Resolution 2007-06-14.10
For we respond that we would like to a regular expression that matches email addresses including international ones (both left and right of @). 2007-06-14 Action 2007-06-14.16 Resolution 2007-06-14.11
