The hack that is currently in place for repeat attributes will be ignored for any element that has xbl bindings applied by a more specific css rule.  Since every xforms element has at least one binding in place, we'd need to special case the elements that we want to support having @repeat-nodeset.  Group is about the only xforms element I think might make good use of this attribute.  But I can also see the argument that introducing yet another binding to support this might just introduce more headaches.  Particularly since any binding/style rules we introduce for xf:group to support this would need to keep in sync with any other style rules for group that might otherwise be conflict (including the current binding for xf:group).  A group with repeat attributes needs to look/behave like any other xf:group except for the repeating content, of course.
