Sure, I'll put some up on Flickr later tomorrow and post the link here. Heck... I'll write a blog entry about it like the docbook one on planetjbpm (will show up on the aggregated JBoss feeds then.)

Nice thing is that I '(ab)used' the richfaces panel to create the 'switch/case' construct in xforms. what I thought to be the most difficult part eventually was almost the easiest.

I've already done some of these since e.g. the look (text, date, boolean) is declared on a different element than the input itself. Unfortunately, I could not get XPath to work in my classes (some strange  'not supported errors' from org.w3c classes), So I traverse the tree myself. This has the advantage though that I can use the localName on elements and thus are deprived of xpath/namespace issues.... Love namespaces, hate the way you have to (ab)use it in java xpath

Contrary to many posters in forums (fora?)  I know how to use google and examples as documentation. Otherwise I would not have come to where I am now :-) 

Thanks for the other pointers. I'll see where I can get. I know where to find you guys if I have questions... :-)
