I share Robbie's interest in this topic. 

I am wondering how our discussions can be materialized however:
currently we are using UIML for a couple of projects (I'll try to upload
some examples soon) and it would be useful to have some agreement on
what direction the specification will take so we can make sure our code
base evolves according to the standard. A general and usable approach
for doing abstract to concrete transformations is certainly an issue
that would be nice to include in the UIML standard. For the behavior
part, there is still the issue of the difficult match between
"application logic" and user interface (cfr. the "connect" method that
is used in uiml.net to make the connection between the user interface
and an object oriented program. The purpose of this method is to
overcome the problem of connecting object instances with UIML interface
parts). Robbie: I wonder whether there are some examples that show how a
DISL interface can be connected with application logic that is contained
in "normal" Java classes?

We should have organized a UIML BOF meeting there ;-).
