probably spilt it into separate classes, with adapters for each platform (seam, jsf, servlet...)
I could then see generation&  customisation of layouts working in a similar way to Facelets
Views, so will give it more thought.
Looks like we're on the same page, interested to see what you come up with.

I called it "process object" pattern in my book, though that was really 
only half the story since I was talking mostly about input of data for a 
specific use case, eg a wizard.  A name I had come up with for an object 
designed for output was "report object".

But the term "view model" seems to be catching on, at least in the .NET 
world, so I'd be happy to adopt it to instead of either of the above terms.
