> 1. Repeat on numbers: In XForms 2.0 we adopt XPath 2.0 and there you can create sequences of numbers using the to operator[1], which allows you to write<xf:repeat ref="1 to 5">   (the current context inside the repeat will hold the atomic value of the current iteration)
I'm still disturbed by @ref use because a Binding expression should 
return nodes not a value, am I right?

This is what I understand from Orbeon Wiki 

    Iterating over plain values

XForms 1.1 only specifies iterating over instance data nodes (elements 
or attributes). As of January 2010, Orbeon Forms supports iterating over 
values, for example:

|<xforms:repeat nodeset="(1 to 10)">|
|<xforms:output value="position()"/>|
|<xforms:output value="."/>|

In this case, the context item within the repeat is a number, not a node.

/NOTE: It is hoped that the XForms specification will include this 
possibility in the future. Possibly, a new attribute, such as 
|sequence|, could be proposed, since a sequence of numbers is 
technically not a node-set!/


What do you think?
