Ability to create/move widgets to another container (dialog, window) at
runtime or ability to disconnect/reconnect signals at runtime is a must
have. Generally speaking, the features specifications & the runtime API
design is something that should come ages *before* considering using a DSEL
way of expressing stuffs, no?

Looks like you somewhat take the problem backward to me, because even if you
agree on which DESL to take connecting this DESL to the runtime api will
likely be problematic as everyone one this list will bikeshed about how the
runtime api will look, what features the lib must have, etc... and by the
time those specs & runtime API are written in stone the DESL will likely be
meaningless :)
