as said, its not Forge that would provide the runtime functionality you wish for. Forge is a great possible facilitator/helper for this but it really is more in the area of deltaspike/metawidget and future layers on top of that this belongs.

But Forge as a 4GL could be more responsive, almost "runtime" code generation. More like what you get in the Rails world. :-)
