Reference XML instance data & Dependent Dropdowns

Hello,

Please forgive my newness to this technology. I'm an Orbeon XForms expert,
but still exploring ODK quite a bit. I've read a conversation about
dependent selects, but it seems to be asking about dependence based on a
sever call. This would be much less complex if we could put some
"reference" XML data outside the instance that is submitted to the Aggregate
server. For example, if I wanted to have only the farmer groups
that belong to the country I choose, I could use some pre-populated
reference XML data like this:

Kenya

KE

<farmer_groups>

<farmer_group>

Test Group 1

KE

</farmer_group>

<farmer_group>

Test Group 2

UG

</farmer_group>

</farmer_groups>

My aim is that only "Test Group 1" would show up (if bound correctly, of
course).

  1. Is is possible to have "reference" data outside the instance that's sent
    to the Aggregate server?
  2. Is this kind of conditional logic-driven selection possible?

Thanks so much in advance, and great work on this initiative!

After reading more posts, it seems that the itemset functionality is not
available. Sorry for posting a duplicate question.
