I did not meant that, but yes, you also should do that! I mean CCK
fields are sometime a complex form structure.

As a start, any multiple content field sub form is itself an array of
this particular field type single value sub form, if it's configured as

Even the single value sub form, for some particular types, can be a
complex structure of form elements, that is not the case with node
reference (as I could remember, but I could be wrong). In this case, you
have to set an array of value form elements that matches the current
existing values (or the new one you want to add).
