Hi Adrian

Interesting idea, but I'm not clear about exactly what problem it is  
solving. Is it:

* increase development speed of creating forms
* allow end user (with XML knowledge) to define their own form layout
* as a type of DirectToSwing (WebObjects style concept) quick way to  
mock up applications

The main issue I foresee is having the flexibility to lay out edit  
forms exactly as required. Taken to the extreme, you could end up  
creating something like Matisse where the entire form design is  
stored in XML (although you go further with the data binding of  
course). Your example has a very simple box layout style design - do  
you intend to take that much further?
