The issue is that FAPI (it really shouldn't be called that), muddles  
the data structures for the view and model components of the MVC  

You _do_ have a data model in the form, but we need a function like  
form_builder to extract it.

I will be discussing at DrupalCon how to untangle these two concerns,  
and how it ties into CRUD.
(every 'type' with a model, automatically gets a form 'scaffolding' it.)
