If you can standardize on the EJB3 spec, then you can piggy back on 
JBoss Seam for TX management and state management while concentrating on 
useful UI components-- I've debated this a bit, but JBoss is taking the 
route of code generation at this point for rails-ish support, but I 
would like to see dynamic UIComponents such as the ones you are pitching 
that can work off of reading EJB3 meta data types.
