Company man that I am, I'd like to know more about:.
XForms; if XForms were done in RDF, gave everything a URI, and broke
from the general "form" container to the Container & Indexable
abstractions, it would look a whole lot like RDF Forms.

Naturally, I'm keenly interested in reusing the conceptual model of
XForms if it's appropriate, and understanding why not if it's not.

Is it awkward to cast RDF-Forms as a projection of XForms into RDF?
Doing that, we'd suddenly have a lot of spec written, significant
community review, and maybe XForms->RDFForms XSLTs* and even some
usable code.

* could a normailzation of RDF Forms with a closed content model
  make RDFForms->XForms XSLTs possible? Then there'd be tools that
  could do the hard job of interacting with the user.
