This is basically being discussed for "select editable", but no solution
has been found that suits all needs,
- backwards compatible
- forward compatible
and therefore there hasn't been looked into this yet I suppose. Having a
comma separated list might work, but is probably too technical for most

Single. Just see all the weblogs, login forms etc.
