I'm quite pleased with the direction of the thread. One thing that has been on my mind is the need to get more community involvement in the form of code contributions. As Dan pointed out, working together, we can allocate engineering differently and make more forward progress. There are some things which I think fundamentally should be part of the platform (such as hooks in controls for validation) and other things which can be outside it (like how to visualize all of those validation messages).

I'm quite pleased to see a bunch of JIRA features filed and much more pleased to see code contributions!
