Well, I do see this differenlty... "only" XML-base web publishing is not
enough... Nearly everyone seems to need more. This would explain all the
homegrown form approaches out there. If there would be an easy integration
of other webapp frameworks like e.g. Struts I would aggree. But there is
no such... So we need to come up with something. Current form handling
seems to be thorn in quite a lot people's side.
