Hmmm, that's for sure an option, however, I'd not like to see that people 
contributing widgets would accidentally break z3c.form, moreover, I got the 
impression that z3c.form aims to be very generic and therefore should not 
deal with anything specific like an email widget.

What's your opinion on this, Stephan?
