> Create Default Transitions for Dialogs

> We could make defining dialogs much easier with some default transitions. If we
> assume that the dialog states in dialog-config.xml are listed in the order they
> are traversed, we could provide default "next" and "previous" transitions for
> each state, except of course, there would be no "previous" transition for the
> first state, and no "next" transition for the previous state. Any explicit
> "next" or "previous" states declared in dialog-config.xml would override the
> defaults.
> It also seems like a common requirement to have dialog-scope transitions (not
> state-scope) for each state in the dialog. For example, many wizards have tabs
> that let you jump from one wizard panel to the next, regardless of the currently
> displayed wizard panel. We could also create default dialog-scope transitions
> whose outcomes and targets match the state names. Again, you could override
> those defaults by providing your own transitions.
> With those changes, we would reduce this:
> <dialogs>
>   <dialog            name="Create Account"
>                     start="User Information">
>     <transition outcome="User Information" target="User Information"/>
>     <transition outcome="Address"          target="Address"/>
>     <transition outcome="Phone Numbers"    target="Phone Numbers"/>
>     <transition outcome="Summary"          target="Summary"/>
>     <transition outcome="Exit"             target="Exit"/>
>     <view            name="User Information"
>                    viewId="/pages/account.jsp">
>       <transition outcome="next"
