No, not in the XForms part. But how would you define this component in SVG?
I think defining these would be simpler with a script then using a
declerative syntax. But please feel free to prove me wrong :-)

I very much agree that a declarative syntax is nicer then script for most
cases. However, it quickly get's really complicated.

Also, I think that it would be a fairly uncommon task to create widget looks
and behavior (content comes from XForms) with XSL-T. But again, I might be
totally wrong :-)
