Not the styling itself, but writing <fi:styling type="output"/> in the 
template. Or am I wrong? This hint is now added by the FormsTransformer, 
isn't it?

I don't see them. With user you mean CForms user, so a developer? A user 
of the web app can not change both at all.

And for the developer:
fd:output is just a subset of <fd:field state="output">, so all use 
cases can be done using the latter too. The remaining question is 
whether the output state allows more than the output widget does. Yes, 
it allows to change the state, but who does it? Whether a developer 
changes the field definition or the state in a flowscript - I don't see 
a difference. It's the same role 'developer' doing it or do you 
discriminate both?
