Re: Issue request for the TAG: XForms

Since somebody else has brought up XForms, I'd like to point out the
following section (as discovered by Paul Prescod);

In particular,

  The HTTP "get" protocol is deprecated for use in form submission.
  Form authors should use "post" for greater compatibility.

I don't have an issue with XForms not supporting GET (though once it's
there, I wonder why you'd want to get rid of it), but I do have an
issue if it's deprecating GET *and* claiming to be able to replace
HTML forms;

The thread in which this is still being discussed is;

FWIW, I don't think this requires TAG attention yet, but if any of the
TAG members are looking at XForms anyhow ...
