Long time since I heard from ya <g>.

You are right that XFA/XFDL are not HTML and I am not arguing that point.
What I neglected to say was that the days of monolithic standards are over
and that we, the XML developers, should start adopting the modular approach
used in XHTML and XSL/XSLT.  Using this approach, XFA/XFDL can remove
overlaps with XHTML modules and then divide up the remainder into several
modules.  Result would be far more understandable, supportable, and

Small, simple, modular XML standards is what I would like to see.
