Hi Nick and Leigh,

It hasn't been done yet, but this action is to correspond with 
1) removing ref/nodeset as special attributes from elements like header 
and bind
2) adding binding exceptions on header and bind if you bind to a model 
other than the containing one with a model or a bind attribute
3) removing model as special attribute from elements like var and 
4) clarifying special handling of model attribute on these elements 

Also, Leigh, we were thinking that perhaps you were asking about whether 
context applied to only to single node bindings (versus also nodeset 
bindings) due to something specific you were reading that needed 
clarification, and if so, could you indicate what that is (unless it is 
now clear by the move of context attribute to the Common group).

Thank you for the great input!

We've added @context to Common attributes because now that we have AVT's 
(and if, while attribute on actions) it makes indeed sense to have context 
everywhere, this was the intention anyway. (We also ensured that all 
XForms elements allow at least the common attributes).

Could you elaborate a bit why you are thinking @context may not go on both 
single-node-binding and sequence-binding? It is intended to go everywhere. 

Kind regards,

There is still a distinction between 
single-node binding: @model, @ref, @bind
sequence-binding (formerly nodeset) binding @model, @ref, @nodeset, @bind
In that single-node-binding is used on 
label, hjelp, hint, alert, message, item/value, item/copy, 
upload/filename, upload, output, output/mediatype, input, textarea, 
secret, select,select1, range, trigger, submit, load, setvalue, group, 
and sequence-binding is used on 
itemset, insert, delete, repeat.

Q: Does @context go on both single-node-binding and sequence-binding?

Q: Also, does @context go in any of the following places, which currently 
have @nodeset, @ref, or @model:
header, bind
other actions (rebuild, dispatch, send, setfocus, etc)
