Mmmmh. I think the SourceResolver should be _one_ of the possible 
models, and not the default one if something else than "java" is used. 
What would be a real killer feature is a SQL model : no more java coding 
to edit/update your database from XMLForm (I must say having to write 
extensive JavaBean code refrained me to use it up to now).

Also, doesn't this "XMLForm model" concept match the Input and 
OutputModules ?
