I didn't know how to interpret that section about forms when I read it
because Tim's statements are rather vague. However, a frightening
thought just struck me.
Could it mean that the W3C isn't going to use WF2 directly, but rather
push ahead with Dave Ragget's Forms Lite proposal ? There seems to
be significant discussion about it going on at www-forms . The
proposal seems to throw out much of the WF2 work (including some
explicitly because of Opera's existing implementation), in favour a very
much corrupted version that is somehow attempting to integrate with XForms.

I hope so.
