Yes, there's always been an uncomfortable asymmetry here - XSLT to 
handle the output, XForms to handle the input. Which doesn't really work 
well in an Ajax kind of world. I'd love to do something more integrated. 
In principle XSLT is an event-based language so it ought to be possible 
to find a way to make it handle user-input events (or data arriving from 
the server) by firing appropriate template rules. But I've no idea how 
this would look in detail.
