Doug Tidwell, of XSLT fame. It was entertaining and informative.
I was able to find my answer to what is being sent over http during a submission, HTTP PUT. But, since it is a parameter I'm sure get and post are also supported.
One really interesting usage is creating a custom editor for an XML file. The file itself can be used to generate the XFORM.
One of the demos had to perfect circle:
XForm -> XML -> XSLT -> XForm ..........
This has me think, if I can find a java based renderer for xforms, then I could make a universal XML editor as an Eclipse plugin. Considering the amount of xml we have to deal with in the J2EE world, there could be a lot of potential for such a tool.

XForms / Struts integration
