Hi Steven,

We use currently use the ref attribute to conditionally make the switch non-relevant. Example:

<xf:switch ref=”.[../payment-method = ‘credit’]”>…

If we re-purpose ref to also be the case-ref, this use case won’t work anymore…

    Remind me why we need @caseref.
    <switch> already has @ref, which we use for nothing except relevance.
    Can't we continue to use it for relevance, but pointing to the caseref  
    node instead?
    Or is there a really pressing backwards compatibility issue?
