Oh, I'm sorry.  The work I did trying to support XForms a while ago, was nothing
and I have no basis for my argument.  Never mind the fact that I tried to work
with the XForms expert group in the past to make it a bit more open to a Client/
Server environment, but the experts had their minds set on a client only
implementation (and even said as much).  Never mind the fact that the validation
layer, and client interaction assumes a constant connection with the user.
I just don't know what I am talking about.

Give me a break will you?

When XForms is widely adopted the only thing Cocoon will need to do is accept
the XML results.  I doubt Cocoon will have a problem with it.  When XForms
is widely adopted there will be support for it in IE and Mozilla.
