I think it would be rather difficult or impossible to use Fox's
validation functions in the wikiforms script, but I don't really know.
I just want to comment briefly on your statement:

Fox plus Input markup allows creation of all kinds of edit forms.
Say you have data pages each with 20 PTVs with data items, you could
build a fox edit form where each PTV is displayed for editing in a
separate field. What Fox lacks at present is a generic edit form
which will display edit fields for whatever number of PTVs it
Fox could also edit single table rows, by having a foxedit link
attached to each, and clicking it will open an edit form with
corresponding fields for each cell, provided that the table is
constructed as a pagelist and each row represents a data page.
But no doubt Wikiforms is much more specialised and clever in
handling data tables. Fox is more of an all-purpose processor.
