And changes in the form need to propogate.

Since the form is created before the submit is called (with no way to  
recreate it)
meaning that when you display the form (after having submitted it)  
any changes
you have made don't reflect yet.

The fact that the values you are seeing as correct are just because  
they were in the _POST,
and overrode the defaults provided (the things you need to change).
