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.
