Actually, Mohan is saying something clever here.

We really want people to think about it as plain text with some extra frills (like bold text). Not as simplified HTML.

So how about "Smart Text"? Or "Enhanced Text"?

I would like to back Rogers suggestion for automatic rendering of unordered lists, but more in a wiki fashion, so that
* some item
* another item
* last one
  • some item
  • another item
  • last one
I don't think that would result in unexpected formatting when added to the Rich/Smart/Enhanced text widget. Any objections? If not I'll gladly add it when the widget is available.

Regarding the form builder integration: that's great. I hope this will result in an acs-subsite (kernel?) parameter where the admin can define the default widgets that are available plus the ability for the programmer to override it in particular cases with options passed to the widget. (Just bluntly requesting features here ...)
