This seems very close to AFs. In fact I think from a markup perspective the mechanisms 
you need are *exactly* AFs

What I think you're adding is a XML serialization/mapping layer which is AF aware. So 
once you've processed your instance as a particular AF, you end up with application 
objects that conform to interfaces that inherit from one another. Sounds nice.

The dynamic proxy stuff in Java ought to make this kind of thing straight-forward to right.
