What I currently have is a SharePoint 2010 project that I have successfully deploying an InfoPath Browser Form (Full Trust) content type and associating it with library instances.

This is working just fine when deploying into the root site (e.g. http://spdev) but when I try to activate the features in a site collection below the root (e.g. http://spdev/sites/list) it fails to open the form via form services and instead tries to open via InfoPath.

Is this some sort of weird limitation to Form Services or am I missing some random attribute that will make this work?

While deploying your feature you need to change the scope of your feature(feature.xml) as web. So when you activate the feature it will be activated for that subsite only.
