Take a look at http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=32169 
where I have enhanced work of Jonas Ekstedt so that one can do the kind 
of things you asked for in the section about multi page forms in 
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=xml-cocoon-dev&m=106672364131946&w=2.

So now it is possible to write CForms wizards by writing javascript FSMs 
in the form definition using widget states. Or if you prefer, by using 
flowscript back-button magic, and automatic selection of what is 
validated based on what widgets you use in your template. But in the 
later case you miss the joy of writing all the javascript event handling 
code ;)
