Definitely. A standard form framework descriptor file would make sense,
then we could (for example) use XSLT to transform Schemas into

Another useful feature (here we go with creeping features already!) would
be the concept of "controlled vocabularies", ie being able to tie a
predetermined set of options to a given form control. I guess this would
be a feature of the mapping-concept.
