I was more expressing a general dislike. The new hook makes probably sense 
within the current architecture.

OTOH, I'd like to see 'eval' to be deprecated in favour of the new 
properties 'required', 'inputTransformation' (FORM->DB), 
'outputTransformation' (DB->FORM), 'validation' and maybe 'inputValidation'.

The difference between 'validation' and 'inputValidation' and is that the 
former operates on the internal (raw) representation (ie after the 
inputTransformation has been applied) and the latter operates on the user 
input (which may be language/locale/setting dependent!).
