XForms 1.1 Review

Grosso, Paul scripsit:

> ACTION to John:  Review XForms 1.1 for us. 

I find the following issues:

1) XForms inherits the definition of "id" from the language in which it
is embedded; as such, it cannot be readily imbedded in a language
where the ID attribute is "xml:id".  Either should be allowed.

2) There is a normative reference to XForms 1.0 that seems unnecessary,
as XForms 1.1 is self-contained.

3) The types xforms:dayTimeDuration and yearMonthDuration should be moved
to the list of empty-content-allowing datatypes in 5.2.7, and the
types xs:dayTimeDuration and xs:yearMonthDuration (in the XSD namespace,
but defined by the XQuery 1.0/XSLT 2.0 data model).

4) xs: seems to be preferred to xsd: as the prefix for the XML Schema
namespace; xsd: suggests the XML Schema Datatypes namespace.

5) The XForms-specific procedures should be harmonized with
the XPath 2.0 function library where possible.

This discharges my action.
