Yeah, my example was only meant to demonstrate the problem. 
Your example does look a bit more like what you'd see. 
Unfortunately, convincing the web to do something like this
is fairly unlikely.

A better example is that at <>. 
According to lynx there is no form action field, and
rightly so.  It's actually embeded in some java.

It'd just be nice to be able to fix it up quickly and
submit the forms.  Downloading the form and fixing it works
but only in the case where relative links aren't being used
and the CGI doesn't look at REFERER.
