I am sure goodwill is a main reason but some question come to my mind

*) why don't you wanna share your thoughts with us and let us
    (or at least some of us) together steer the direction of XMLForms?

*) how do you wanna contribute back? this might become harder as
    we currently might think. the "standalone version" thing really
    points that way.

*) project and communication wise this might give an unwanted
    perspective that XMLForm might not be maintained under the
    cocoon umbrella anymore. not a good marketing...

*) why don't you go the scratchpad way?

Is that the main reason for this - you wanna catch up with the XForms

At least *I* honstely don't see a good reason for XMLForm becoming it's
own Apache project - sorry.

Why not scratchpad?
