This is very different from an event-based user interface where the sequence of events is controlled by the user. What I'm trying to imagine is some kind of way of associating XSLT templates with user interface events so the dialog structure is user-controlled. Of course this raises question about how state is maintained; I don't have any well-formulated thoughts on this. There must be some relationship with XForms here, but I'm not sure what it is.
