We had some very long threads about these questions. One of the conclusions of 
them was that we have discussed enough *for now* and should come up with a 
prototyp. Then we have something real that can be discussed in every detail again.

After the three days Blockathon I really want to see a *prototyp 
implementation*. I don't say that everything has to work but we should have the 
important contracts defined and more important, a *common understanding* on what 
we want to reach.

AFAIU only some work on cForms is missing (flowscript API and repeater binding)
