the <repeat> element seems to be the source of some controversy.
whenever i have had to implement things like the repetition model in the
past (it's always been tables), i put some constraints on the table.
i.e. minRows and maxRows. there is no need for a <repeat> element in
this model as the table will dynamically maintain it's size. the
<repeat> element is effectively padding. another advantage of this
approach is that you can constrain the size of the table in both directions:
1) an associated <input type="add"> is automatically disabled when you
2) tables can pad themselves with extra rows when data rows are deleted.
so, as an alternative to the <repeat> tag, could we just add some
constraints to the repetition template? min/maxRepeats?
