X:data does not try to dictate display. It tries to by display-agnostic.
For example, type='tab' has no meaning on console displays. Once you
start trying to dictate how to display things you'll end up with XForms
or something similar, which is much too complicated for what x:data is
trying to solve.

Read section 2.4 Portability in jep0004 x:data

| Hi!
|
| x:data form can be not small, and displaying it as list of fields can
take many
| screen space (e.g. MUC configuration form not fitted in my screen).
But this
| form can be splited in some groups of fields, that can be displayed
e.g. in
| different tabs.  So maybe add something like <field type='tab'
label='Another
| tab'/> in beginning of another group of configuration fields?
