The way in which a FORM element with @data is seeded seems internally
CLEAR & REPEAT directives apply to RepetitionBlocks in the whole document.
but FIELD directives only apply to elements within the form.
I would prefer FIELD directives to apply to the whole document - that
seems consistent with current forms which retrieve a whole new page.
Although it does allow conflict between @data on different forms.
The first step in the initialization algorithm (resetting the form)
sounds wrong in the context of form submission.
I assume the intention is that the reset() method is called, but the
documentation says "reset to its initial values as specified in the
These two are the same when the document is initially loaded, but the
form could easily be changed by the time of form submission.
I apologize if these issues have already been discussed.
