I'll definitely be working on a system at some point that generates
forms from the definition of a "content type".  I don't know if those
definitions will be done in terms of a Zope interface or not yet.  So at
this point my attitude is "it can be convenient to generate forms from
content", which may or may not turn out to be the same thing as "it can
be convenient to generate forms from Zope interfaces".

Yes.  Fixed, thanks.

There's a chapter about that:

Further critical eye on documentation appreciated.
