XForms really needed/needs more front-end developers and browser
developers who are willing to tolerate XML and who talk to middleware
and back-end people.

The same is true of XSLT and XPath in the Web browser.

I hope next year we can start some dialogues there -- I'd hoped for this
year but the W3C meeting that's the obvious venue will be in China this
year and the right people won't be there.

What's needed includes
. documenting the way XSLT and XPath are supposed to work in Web
browsers, complete with the JavaScript interfaces...
. raising awareness that XSLT and XPath are actually used
. making the Open Web Platform able to support tools like XForms (and
EXI!) natively, if that support makes sense, as I suspect it does.
