The point about one being a link and one being a button is that both
actions are _not_ equivalent. Users are most likely looking at the form
_because_ they want to delete (or do whatever) something, not because
they want to cancel their action.

At first I didn't like the form too, but I am now convinced that it is a
good thing.
