[And I extend this invitation to the general public]

As the editor of the XFA specifications I would be happy to try and address
some of your more detailed questions.  My ability to keep up on XML-Dev is
very inconsistent (as is clear from the fact that it has taken me this long
to pick up on this thread).  Direct email is always easier for me.

We (JetForm) wish to not require form data to be anything more than well
formed XML.  There is a whole range of initiatives springing up around
schemas and data definition -- not something I want to get in the way of.  I
expect that this bubble of extreme growth will pop in the not too distant
future and collapse into a few de facto technologies and techniques.  IMHO
the Keep It Simple approach to data (i.e. well formed XML) is the safest
'today' approach.
