indeed, this lines up more with how flow is expected to be working

of course we need to consider that this xsp is also used in the 
context of the non-flowscript (but Actions) pipelines that ARE 
putting it just there.

from that viewpoint I think it makes sense to let the flow-script 
bend a bit towards this forehoped reuse.

in any case checking up on the woody_flow_example.js I see that 
it is not even adding any bizData in the sendPage call!
(so there really is no way at all for the xsp to look for the 
form in any part of the context in this way)

so shortest hack to me looks like adding
     cocoon.request.setAttribute("form1", form);
in front of:

in terms of best practice I would probably be advocating the use 
of jxtemplate in combinaion with flow rather then xsp

(which would avoid your question about jpath logicsheet as well)
