Hey Sebastian,

Don't worry, it's never too late.

I'm glad to hear that the core team has already taken those problems seriously, and for me your proposal goes exactly in the right direction (and personally i'm kind of proud that i got to the same point, but this is just personal).

Anyway, since Fluid is already available for 4.3+ why not make the last step and build such a system for the 4 branch as well thanks to an extension? I mean, ExtJS is already there, Extbase and Fluid are here also, and all we need is to build an extension that would fit this together with a wizard. Is this sci-fi? It would have the great advantage to prepare teams to v5.

what do you feel about this guys?
