That's reassuring.  So let's all take a look at Dave's proposals in that
light -- an HTML enhancement that maps more directly onto the concepts
that have been in the XForms Rec since 2003.

I don't think most people in the WHATWG see it as a XForms versus Web  
Forms 2 "match" or something. I don't really believe that to be the case

at all.

WHATWG is a lot more about incrementally enhancing HTML in a way that it

remains compatible with content that is out there.
