Yeah. updating could get flakey. Since it's two forms instead of one.  
Perhaps making them multipage forms instead would simplify what happens.
Only one form to  submit for creating and editing field definitions.

I personally believe that any time a form isn't re-usable via  
drupal_execute, that's a critical bug that needs to get fixed.

You'd also have to keep track of which fields have been removed,  
although that's a pretty simple since fields aren't multiple levels
