One potential upside is the fact that XMLForms uses beans for the datamodel
(I think).  that being the case, I have assumed there'd be a way to let
ejb's fill that role (which based on past discussions I assume you're using
here) and you'd get the binding to/from the form for free as you can in jsp.

I've not used xmlform yet because of the draft status and the time to
learn - same issues you raise.  Looks quite promising though, especially if
the bean hunch pans out.
