Similar to how swing works.

What do you envision using PropertyEditors for?

I could add one:
+ use interfaces and abstract base classes instead of just base 

The examples of that one are numerous and the change would make the
framework more flexible.  A standard set of base classes would be
what most people would use but since the framework itself would be
calling the interfaces it allows those of us living on the edge to
write our own base classes.  Living on the edge implies that we'll
just deal with the fact that our code may break with successive
versions.  The change is especially nice for experimenting with
new ideas.

For example, combine that idea with moving BeanUtils type of calls
into the formbean base class and all you'd have to do is create a
new formbean base class for dealing with Map objects.

Anyway, those are the things that popped into my head.
