Do you mean that form instances can be stored in the session or in a 
continuation, thus having a non-predictible disposal time ? You are 
probably right. This means instances should delegate all their 
component-related behaviour to their definition. I was bit surprised at 
first by the backwards relation from the instance to its definition, but 
it may make sense after all for this purpose.
