The latest xforms spec has increased the degree of separation between xforms and
the actual UI that gets rendered by replacing
@selectUIType=(specific-UI-controls) with @appearance=minimal|compact|full. I've
resulted to writing a short heuristic that looks at the no. arguments and
chooses by some simple rules - the same ones I'd use if I was designing the form
by hand in html. This is very application and taste specific though.

I think that this issue can be looked at more fully when XMLForms moves to
XForms 1.0 names and attributes. (By the way, it would be a good idea if there
were an XSLT stylesheet to convert old forms to new ones).
