What are the arguments for dropping the repetition model?
FWIW I believe that the repetition model is quite useful, and it would 
be a shame to drop it. Especially combined with data roundtrips 
(replace=values), it enables an elegant way of editing tabular data. A 
data grid is an essential component of any UI widget set, and the 
template based approach in WF2 makes it more powerfull and flexible than 
most.

There might be point in editorially seperating the repetition model spec 
from the form-related parts of WF2, though. They don't have too many 
dependencies between them, and it might make both specs clearer and more 
focused.
