Is this not a whole different thing??

My knowledge of FORMs is basically;

The form's fields will be parameters in the URL.
Is there any other long-term suggestions on how forms are to be sent from the
browser to the server?

Sounds to me what you want to do is;

Http parameters -> XML -> validate -> destinationtion processor -> response page.

Then to me, it looks like that Cocoon executes the response page creation, and
that the Generator for such is the 'processor' of the Form.
Then you would add a new type of ServletRequest class, which overrides the
doPost(). It would require its own kind of mapping to validation and processing
classes, but quite straight forward.
