I've done something similar like this:
In the situations in which I've used it, the form data from the previous
page is still in the form fields.
Potential downsides of this approach: the data has not yet been
processed. Or, if it has been, you run the risk of processing it
twice. Also, it may be unreliable depending on how the user's cache is set
up (though I've never had any problems reported to me).
So, it may or may not suit your needs.
