Do we need an XForms actions module if we switch to XML events 2?


When doing my action item 'move Actions module for XForms 1.2 to XML 
Events 2.'  I wasn't sure we need the XForms actions module anymore.

XML events contains:

  - the action element
  - if and while attributes

It also contains a dipatchEvent element what our dispatch element does, 
excluding our delay attribute. Shouldn't we use the same element as 
defined in XML events 2 (if we don't want to change our element name, 
maybe we should contact the people from XML events 2, and ask them to 
change it, our spec is already a Public REC). We should also contact them 
asking to add the delay attribute that we introduced in XForms 1.1.

So the only missing bit is the event() function which we also could add in 
one of the XPath functions modules.

What does everybody think about this?
