Discussion of Work Package 8 Forms
The attending TC members discussed the form's proposal made by Daniel 
Since the TC did not reach a quorum, the attending TC members 
(informally) agreed to start an e-mail voting about the "Modified Form 
Proposal" described below. The TC further discusses whether there is a 
relation to the work of the UBL Forms SC. Daniel Vogelheim will clarify 

Modified Form Proposal
1) The current service name attribute (form:service-name), that is used 
to identify control types as well as allowing its extensibility, will be 
replaced by the same identifications and extensibility mechanism that 
the TC will agree for chart types (for instance a URL or 
namespace-prefix/identifier pair).
2a) The "form:property" element will get the same name/type/value 
attributes as table cells and text fields, and the "form:property-value" 
element will be removed.
2b) The "value-type" attribute and the various type specific value 
attributes (like "string-value" or "boolean-value") will be moved to the 
office namespace for table cells, text fields, form controls and all 
other places there they are used. (At the moment, they at least exist in 
the table and text namespace).
3) The "form:control" element will be joined with its child elements 
(like form:button, form:textarea, etc.) by moving its attributes to the 
child elements and removing the "form:control" element itself.
4) The formatted text control "form:formatted-text" that can take date 
values, time value, numeric values, etc. will be replaced with typed 
controls like "form:date", "form:time", etc. that can only take a single 
value type.

New Action Items
- Daniel Vogelheim: Get in contact UBL Forms SC to clarify a relation to 
the work of that SC.
