I think that it's again the same situation as with customizing label. Standard form definition
covers around 80% of use-cases. If your use-case is unusual Forms framework always leaves
the doors
to customization room open. In this case it's writing custom validator. You could write a
Javascript validator consisting of a few lines of scripting that could calculate value for
according to your needs.

Kamal, we will certainly appreciate any contribution to Cocoon's documentation!
