Well, that's so general that it can't be wrong ;-)

True, we'll surely need the Data Access Component before we go into 
details. But still: we can easily create our own specification by using 
our experience from trillions of projects where forms were needed in the 
front- end backend. So let's start with a specification then.

As I assume that we'll have a JSR-170 based content repository under the 
hood, there won't be such a thing as database queries anyway. As for the 
  groups - why should we give up the flexibility we currently have and 
limit us to predefined user groups? Presets would be okay.
