While reducing the amount of code would be a worthwile goal per se, my 
aim is different. First, I like flow more than actions (I think I'm not 
alone in that). And second, I want to enable more people (mainly inside 
my organization) to be able to "script" web applications and I think 
JavaScript could significantly lower the activation threshold in that 
respect. Shorten the 
edit/compile/correct-errors/deploy/reload-cocoon/test cycle and maybe 
you can be more productive. At least, I hope so. I also want to have a 
cleaner and more declarative sitemap.

All of this, of course, while reusing most of what you have already 
done. Reusing the Validator and SchematronValidator is a piece of cake. 
Reusing the Form and the XMLFormTransformer might be harder, I still 
don't know.
