I also create a dynamic workflow in cocoon with the help of cforms. I 
use a generator, who is generating an xml-stream, including the current 
input-fields or form-fields,  with the help of castor (bean2xml). After 
that i transform the sax-stream to the model-definition. I do the same 
procedure to create the template! In the flow script I load dynamicly 
the cform-model and call the coresponding template!

It works fine!
