Thanks for confirmation ;-)

It is indeed. And your proposal might be useful for simple cases (string 
in XML files => form datatype => string in request parameters). But I 
have an example where I need different convertors in binding and form 
definition: the binding happens to a file I have no influence on, the 
date format is But in my application I have yyyy-mm-dd, so I 
need different convertors. Don't know if it is good to fallback on the 
form convertor - and have no time to think about it ;-)

What do others think about the proposal?

(Before entering a new bug wait for the reactions on your proposal. If 
it is not completely rejected, please don't reuse the bug 30351.)
