Subject: HTML-Transitional Forms Module Support for DocBook?

In working with the DocBook DTD, I noticed a comment about the TC creating or adding a forms module for the DocBook and an entity providing the hook for the module.

The explicit comment from the dbpoolx.mod is as follows:
<!-- The DocBook TC may produce an official forms module for DocBook. -->
<!-- This PE provides the hook by which it can be inserted into the DTD. -->
<!ENTITY % forminlines.hook "">

I am interested in implementing the forms module within a customized version of the DocBook DTD.  Therefore, I am looking for guidance on implementing the forms module and status/schedule from the TC on Forms support.  

My questions are:
1) Is the TC still planning on implementing the forms module?
2) If so, is there any preliminary schedule?
3) To enable forms support today, I have added the module entity definition in the dbpoolx.mod as:
<!ENTITY % dbforms PUBLIC
"-//OASIS//DTD DocBook HTML Forms Module V1.1//EN"
Is this appropriate?  If not, how should I be providing support for Forms in anticipation of the TC release of the DocBook with forms support?

Thank you in advance.
