Following on from this, I see that "8.1 Common attribute and content sets"  
lists Control Common, appearance, inputmode, incremental, UI Common,  
xml:lang, class, navindex and accesskey.

https://www.w3.org/community/xformsusers/wiki/XForms_2.0#Common_attribute_and_content_sets

Of these, all are mentioned on the elements where they are used, with the  
exception of

     class, xml:lang, navindex, and accesskey.

I propose to move class and xml:lang into Common, and navindex and  
accesskey into Control Common, so that it becomes obvious where they are  
permitted.
