Most likely too esoteric. Coincidentally, I was just facing similar
issue in our app, where there was a form inside another one. What I
did was to simply disable inner form (`innerForm.disable()`) right
before serialization. This effectively disables all of the form's
controls, making them "unsuccessful" for serialization. You can get an
inner form by either "id" (if you know it) or usng `down`/`select`
(from the outer form) as needed.
