If it were possible to use form definitions made in struts-config.xml,
then you would not have to reimplement this property in FormDef, and I
would not have to wait for you to reimplement it ;-) I would just
apply your patch to my copy of DynaActionForm, and FormDef would pick
up transparently whatever properties are defined in struts-config.xml.
Is it possible at all? Or is it too much work?

In a way, this is similar to explicitly supporting all HTML tag
attributes in Struts tags instead of supporting whatever a developer
put into a tag as attribute, and to let user agent care about that.
