Subject: Spec examples probably incorrect


I mentioned this to Leigh and Keith, but I figured I'd bring this up to
the whole group, too.

One of our users said that the spec has an example of event() being used
with xf:output in a @ref and he was right ->
http://www.w3.org/TR/xforms11/#submit-evt-submit-error which I believe
is incorrect.  I also think that the xf:message with event() being used
in a @ref example under http://www.w3.org/TR/xforms11/#structure-model
is incorrect, too.

Leigh mentioned that perhaps allowing @value on a xf:message might not
be a bad idea, especially for reporting errors and I think he is right. 
  It would be pretty useful.  Embedding a xf:output inside the
xf:message isn't exactly difficult, but it might not be quickly thought
of by an author.  If we don't go with @value on a xf:message, how about
putting an example of embedding a xf:output inside a xf:message inside
the message section of the spec?
