Definately not for headline. Headline explicitly means that the message
is of a one-way broadcast type, so sending a filled out form back
wouldn't make sense at all.

My gut tells me that type=chat shouldn't have a problem with x:data...
chat means that there's a one-on-one conversation of sorts, and fields
to fill out don't seem to specifically contradict that idea. That
doesn't mean I can imagine a way to implement them in a way that would
relate to the chat window.
