Yes but this will complicate forms in extensions. Currently developers 
just say "I want it to be integer from 10 to 100" and it is there.

May be evaluations should not be built-in but provided as separate 
classes. This way we need not to have hooks, they all will be loaded 
dynamically and any field can be altered if necessary.

And, as you pointed, we should have validation as separate thing. 
Currently "date" is really evaluation while "int(10-100)" is validation.
