Form API and the conversion of core to it is not Pallas Athene to sprang  
fully grown and armed. No. The form API was a fantastic achievement by  
Adrian which was refined further during the conversion. Some parts of the  
core are 'ancient', like their theme function do not use element_children  
to iterate through the form and so on.

On the other hand, we need a 4.7 out of the door so these WILL NOT be  
fixed. In 4.8, I will kill global $form_values, rest assured. And if I  
have my own way, do away with all other globals, but that's a whole  
another story.
