Hm, is this going to hold back a stable release, or is it more of a side 
project? Just wondering, because a few weeks ago no common browser supported 
XForms, and no browser developer had any plans to support them in the 
future. The W3C might have declared them the future standard, but they 
haven't cared much about the real world in the last few years.

Since then, Novell and IBM have announced to add support to Mozilla, but I 
assume that's mostly for their own applications, since nobody will use 
XForms on the Web as long as only Mozilla supports them. Also, looking at 
the 90% or more of "XHTML" out there that is invalid (not well-formed), I 
don't expect an XML-based Web to catch on anytime soon.
