In fact the web-forms repeat is significantly worse than a specifically 
implemented script - the repeat element is allowable on any element and 
every element has to be checked during the page load, this is completely 
impractical in reality, and a custom script would be much more performant, I 
can't see any scripter who's already doing this very simple thing switch to 
a general model with much worse performance currently.
