But this looks to me like a conversational user interface where the 
program asks the user a question and waits for a reply. This is very 
different from an event-based user interface where the sequence of 
events is controlled by the user. What I'm trying to imagine is some 
kind of way of associating XSLT templates with user interface events so 
the dialog structure is user-controlled. Of course this raises question 
about how state is maintained; I don't have any well-formulated thoughts 
on this. There must be some relationship with XForms here, but I'm not 
sure what it is.
