So you break all caching, you ensure that WF2 forms have to be
submitted in the same "session" as they are downloaded (I can't
download a form last week, and submit it today, as my clock's likely
to have changed)  and you can't deliver forms by email, from CD etc.
for submission to the web.

It certainly seems an awful lot of work when I failed to see anyone
have a problem with this on the web today.
