Yes, it could. The new feature was added recently and is not yet in the
core documentation so we can change it.
Currently "space" is a separator but not so simple: one can quote
strings containing spaces; this comes very handy from ParseArgs().
(:input default name val1 "val 2" val3 val4:)
-> note, may change!
Using a simple explode() with a separator is very easy but what happens
if one of the values contains the separator?
Also, the current markup for all input elements:
(:input ELEMENT name 1,2,3,4,somevalue:)
means that the "value" argument in the HTML input tag is
"1,2,3,4,somevalue". It is not very consistent to have ONE way to define
a value in (:input text name value:), (:input checkbox name value:) or
any other element, and ANOTHER in (:input default name value:).
I also also think that an existing PTV in the page should be able to
check/uncheck the checkboxes, by simply setting (:input default
Let me think about it.
