A XUL example would be *sweeeeeet*. Another one would be PDF-forms but 
I don't think FOP supports it. :-( (besides, how would we do this?

Cocoon Forms vs. Java Server Faces: gosh, never thought of it, but 
yeah, that's the perfect challenge.

Ah, note, Craig told me that JSF are not bond to HTML. You implement a 
java class for each different channel of the "server face".

This will be a cool battle to watch.
