Modular/contextual interaction design

I'm doing some research into sites that use a modular/contextual design
approach, and was wondering if anybody knew of any examples. I'll use the
concept of iGoogle to illustrate exactly what I mean…

Say I'd like to add more content to my personalized homepage. To do so, I
click "Add Stuff" and this takes me to a separate area that contains a
catalog of available widgets. Even though I mentally recall that I'm adding
content to my homepage, this area is visually independent of the homepage

Now, consider another approach.

Anyone worked with XForms

Anyone worked with XForms, or even better Lotus Forms for creating
XForms? Anything to be aware of? Major obstacles in terms of UX?

If your cool with talking off-list, I'd love to pick your brain(s).
