In its seven years of existence, Semantic Forms has become a fairly robust and feature-rich framework for defining page-editing forms. New features are still being added, and more are planned (see here). But there are various features for Semantic Forms that have been requested at various times since nearly the beginning, that there is simply no plan to implement - because they don't fit into the conception of SF as a page-editing framework, or because they would be very difficult to implement, or because they would add too much complexity to the code, etc. This talk will go over some of these requested features, and present possible workarounds for each; and maybe even present some development challenges for the community.
