The evaluation context of the 'if' and 'while' attributes is not defined.

The context node, position, size, variables, and function library would 
need to be defined.  It may be hard to define this in a way that allows 
other consumer languages (like XForms) to augment the definitions.  We may 
have to import your tag set to our namespace and say "like theirs, only 
with our context rules).

I would also recommend adding a 'context' attribute that can take the 
context that would have gone to if or while and then produce a new context 
node, position(1) and size (size of context nodeset).

Cheers,
