Future of XBL

Hi Everyone,

>From reading this list, it seems that many XForms implementations are
using or interested in using XBL for custom behavior binding. However,
based on the work that's being done in the W3C Webapps group (which I
think XBL technically falls under), it seems that there is no interest
in continuing XBL development. As an alternative some specification
work is being done to extend Shadow DOM under the name of "Component
Model" within the Webapps group, but this seems like a
javascript-based API that may be inappropriate for XForms usage. So I
am curious what the future of custom-behavior attachment will be for
xforms and whether or not this group will take the lead on XBL
