Both sound like excellent suggestions, and I would be interested in
exploring them further, preferably in collaboration with people who
know much more about Ajax IDEs than I do.
p.s. I think that it isn't a question of XF-T vs WF2, but rather a
synthesis of the best of both proposals. I will be exploring this on
the public wiki maintained by the W3C Forms working group over the
next month or so.
