Ok. No pressure.

Of course it's open to debate, but it seems to me that if you are using 
flowscript then that is also the best place to put the action, 
on-change, and validation callbacks.  If you're not using flowscript 
then what are you using (actions?). You can write your own FormHandler 
to handle action, on-change, and validation in your action. I don't 
think we should duplicate that functionality in the form definition (in 
terms of JS snippets and repeater-action) simply because it may be 
inconvenient to do it in an action.
