In a word - no. :)

If you're talking about the cumbersome task (in CF at least) of working with
form data and re-using forms, one thing you might consider doing is
CFPARAMing your form field values together at the top of the action template
and checking for len (since the value will have already be defined) in the
processing portion of the template.

Of course, depending on what else you're doing with the form values, this
could just open up a whole new can of worms.. ;)
