You can add a custom setupWidgets method in the sub form which
disables the context adaption.

Stephan and I duscussed this during development, I think we
should add the hook into the form. He thinks not. But I guess
we have to discuss this once again.

Here is the method for context less forms:

def updateWidgets(self):
    self.widgets = zope.component.getMultiAdapter(
        (self, self.request, self.getContent()), interfaces.IWidgets)
    self.widgets.ignoreContext = True
    self.widgets.ignoreReadonly = True
    self.widgets.update()


>     def create(self, data):
>         r = Restaurant()
>         r.name = data['name']
>         r.description = data['description']
>         r.address = data['address']
>         return r
>     
>     def add(self, object):
>         self._name = object.name
>         self.context[self._name] = object
>         return object
>     
>     def nextURL(self):
>         return absoluteURL(self.context[self._name], self.request)
