Vlado has already started touching on this with his relationship api.  
He has completely bypassed the node forms as they stand currently.

Node forms are too restrictive at the moment, although the latest  
move that gets rid of nodeapi:form, and forces you to use form_alter  
might make node generating wizards simpler.

My wizard API is slated for 4.8. The forms api was actually just  
laying the groundwork for the wizard api (or should I say workflow api.)
