I'm also writing up on the issue of repeater-binding as we speak...
The goal there is to write up a catalog of possible use cases for the 
repeater-binding, pls check if your use case is not covered there.

In more general terms I hear you ask for custom-bindings to hook back 
into predefined bindings, right

I'ld have to give that some more thought... proposals welcome of course...

maybe things could be so simple as requiring the @builder variant of the 
<fb:custom> have a factory-method that takes both the nested DOM-config 
and the 'Assistant'... hm, but that one is today a quite specific and 
jxpath-tight thing IIRC, would need to see if we could abstract that out 
in a sensible way
