It's a problem for me while I have dozen's of documents in one context alone
to set up editing for. I'm half-done an example tag-lib which will require:
1. a form template (including validation items per input)
2. a set of source files to edit.
3. The tag-lib containing page (s).

I'm just about done. It's much more of a hack than fp and only for purposes
of discussion . . .

I suspect any way you slice it, I'll end up contributing to fp, if I'm able.
I think you've put in more time than I could have and your code is clean :)
