No need to invent an idiosyncratic feature for this---just save a  
copy of the form and edit the values to taste.

The only problem with this right now is that some browsers don't seem  
to be very smart in the way they save HTML into local files.   
Specifically, they don't resolve relative links, even though they  
know perfectly well what the full URLs are, and even though the  
document is useless without such resolution.  Right now you have to  
edit the URLs in the saved file yourself.
