Well, at least you think before committing ;-P

to an XML document, it is possible to specify a convertor, that can be totally different from
the one that will be used to display the value to the user. Note that this converter is optional,
and if not present, the default converter for the datatype is used.

Mmmh... We must have a way to define it somehow. Should it be defined on 
each <wd:default>, or on some enclosing element like the <wd:form> itself?

Or can't we simply use the xml:lang attribute, meaning we crawl up the 
XML elements starting at <wd:convertor> until we find this attribute?
