Alain,

That is probably possible but might require quite complex XForms.

At Orbeon we haven't tried this specifically, but we have worked on  
multiple occasions on dynamic UI generation in XForms based on various  
UI descriptions, the latter of which being our Form Builder (written  
entirely in XForms plus extensions).

We have found that extensions to XForms 1.1 help a lot, in particular  
the use of XPath 2.0 and the use of variables.
