Is there a use case for having fetchhint="prefetch" for a <submit>?
Im particularly curious if there's any intended use of <submit>
with fetchhint="prefetch" that could not be replaced with a <goto>?
Is the idea, e.g., that you'd have a <submit fetchhint="prefetch"
namelist="x" next="..."/> where "x" is something like a document-level
<var> that always has a meaningful value, but which may change over
time?  Is there ever a case where you'd want to have such a <submit>
with a namelist containing a not-yet-collected form input?
