Not yet, but since the need exists, why not adding it to Cocoon?

About the private classes, I think its finally a good thing they are 
private, as IMO they need a bit of refactoring: their fields are package 
accessible while their methods are private, and I don't like runtime 
classes (JXPathBindingBase) to have dependencies on build-time classes 

So, Harald, my suggestion is for you to wait a few days so that I 
refactor these classes and then provide the new widget.
