Oh, sure !
I just didn't thinked we could use attribute !
I vote that the "idea of the week" goes to Neil at this time ;)
That would be *really* great, cause I think it would ease the use of
some directives to get back the status of a given page.
Somtehing like (:status Softs/OpenOffice :) returning something like :
"Status of Softs/OpenOffice is Draft and last modified by pyg on 04 Feb
2005 at 16:23"

Yes of course, maybe we could use some "reference numbers" with
customisation in XLPage
'Status1' => 'Todo"
'Status2' => 'Just started"
So, an admin could define his own status list, eg: 'Status7' => 'Draft :
less than 50% done" or something like this.
I would kill for this ! ;)

I totally agree that it should be displayed on edit form, but if we use
some "reference numbers", admin should also define it as drop-down menu
(take less space on page, especially with large number of items).
May I open this as a PITS entry ?
