I've read the previous posts regarding "hidden" inputs with respect to
XForms.  The suggested approach is to leave the instance data unbound and
push the model through to the processor creating the effect of a hidden
field.  Not sure how this would work in an XForms XSLT though.  Since the
"model" is not coming back in the form of an XML document, how might the
model HTMLify hidden input fields?  

I guess I could create an extended control that contains a reference to the
model element or create some funky template to create hidden form fields
using XSLT/XPath functions.  I guess this is more of an XSLT exercise than
anything, but any help would be appreciated.
