That's a very good point, but it would depend on some changes to the
uF parsing rules.

Elements like <textarea/> that just wrap values could be parsed
normally but others like <input type="text"/> would need to be parsed
using the @value, and I'm not sure what we'd have to do to be able to
parse, for instance, radio buttons.
