I was just thinking the same thing. It was actually the ChoiceBox that
really made my form framework difficult to implement and that spilled over
to the other guys. I think getting ChoiceBox sorted is the first, simple
thing to do and this might make the rest of it start to look simple again.
I have raised this:

I really like your annotation idea. Makes a lot of sense! When I get some
time (if only there was more of it!) I will play around with my form stuff
and see if that would make it easy, or if I can find any shortcomings to
this approach. I suspect it will work nicely.
