If you view `xf:submit` as just a shortcut for `xf:trigger` + `xf:send`,
`xforms-action-error` sounds reasonable.

I would lean towards dispatching the same error in both cases: when using
`xf:send` and when using the `xf:submit` shortcut. Since we have
standardized the use of `xforms-action-error` in actions, I would be ok
keeping `xforms-action-error` for `xf:submit`.

Maybe we could present `xf:submit` more explicitly as a shortcut for `xf
:trigger` + `xf:send`.
