Option for 'hint' text on a textbox control

It would be useful to be able to supply 'hint' text for a textbox control. The hint text would be displayed when the textbox is empty, and doesn't currently have focus so that users get a hint of the details required in that textbox. Some additional things which would be beneficial with this:

* Ability to specify a specific the foreColor for the hint text on the control, with a default of light grey if a specific colour is not selected.
* Ability to specify a specific the foreColor for the hint text on the textbox skin definition, with a default of light grey if a specific colour is not selected.

A number of applications perform a smooth animated 'move' of the hint text so it becomes a label for the textbox when it gains focus, such as on logon screens. Whilst not as critical, it may be useful to be able to specify relative negative offsets for the x/y position to move the label to when the textbox gains focus, and have the label smoothly animate to/from this position as/when the textbox gains/loses focus.
