I think this has to be changed :) It should be done dynamically when
the form is "rendered".

Yes, this is always the problem. But the good thing is: as long as
we are only argueing via mail and don't sit in the same room, we 
can't throw real things at each other...(just kidding).
Now, one of the problems is that I'm still not that familiar with
the woody terms, but on the other hand of a clear vision on how
it should work.

Yes, of course! That's why I dry to explain my ideas although I don't
have a clue on how woody works.

Yes, sure!
