I'm still running around the hot soup of repeater-binding (in my head)
and your scenario (which I think is quite widespread) of the wd:output 
that never gets styled is for me an additional reason for having an 
intrinsic Identity property on each Reater.Row

with it you wouldn't even need to declare it in your form-definition 
since it really only has a purpose for the binding, and actually never 
really is a true/valid widget, or is it?
