Erik,

Thanks yes I am very familiar with the excellent Orbeon form builder. I
think my main observation is that there are some XForm implementations that
have a designer (and some that do not) and there are some designers that
are pure designers (or could be used as such) and are not specific to an
implementation - hence having two lists (or two columns on a single list)
could be useful to show the distinction.
