I haven't looked at the latest Woody stuff so I cannot comment on the 
details, but I'm with you here: the "basic" samples should use as 
little javascript as possible, it is always possible to provide other 
"browser-picky" samples which show a nicer face using javascript.

The last thing we want is users thinking that Woody (soon Cocoon Forms, 
remember) is dependent on client-side javascript, we know it is not the 
case but I'd hate it if the samples conveyed the wrong idea.

Don't get me wrong, what's currently happening with Woody is great! But 
as Cocoon is using javascript server-side already, we must be careful 
to get the right message across.
