If this is what you want then indeed you need two steps. As you have not outlined what do you want to do with the form, I can't really guess a better way. Maybe you want to do
$form = drupal_retrieve_form($form_id);
or even drupal_process_form($form_id, $form);
Eaton did a very good job in slicing up the form workflow steps into separate functions -- but if you want half of a step, then you indeed need do it for yourself.
