I separated the data just to keep the form definitions tidy, with the idea that the a new data set could be swapped in via AJAX easily.
The data block is only currently used to populate SELECT tag values, but I plan to expand it to be able to populate the entire form, such as when you pull up an existing record. It could hook into form sort of MVC. The idea was to keep it fairly server agnostic though. I also plan to add some simple validation functionality.
