Now, I'm not sure if you missed the headline "Open XUL Alliance Site" goes live. Please, click on the link and you will see a mailing list entitled xul-talk with the blurb "Beyond Mozilla; Talk about XUL issues touching more than one XUL motor/browser/runtime"

It's all just getting started. Now is the time to innovate and build up some XUL motors/browsers/runtimes. It's too early for creating a spec.

If you want to get started, however, you're more than welcome. How about cleaning up W3C XForms or Mozilla XUL and creating a fresh XUL+XForms working draft?
