Yes, I'm +1. Or +10, +100 and even +1000 :-)

This issue has raised a number of questions from users seeing some 
fields unexpectedly loosing their values, and has been discussed at length.

The only visible change, as stated by Tim, is the need for boolean 
fields to be accompanied by a "presence notifier" input, whose purpose 
is to indicate that a boolean field is present in the form. This is 
required to circumvent the fact that HTML sends nothing for an unchecked 
checkbox, and therefore doesn't allow to know if the chekbox is present 
but unchecked, or is absent in the page.

This has absolutely no impact on the fact that only widgets present in 
the form read request parameters, and that therefore no one can input 
value that doesn't match a widget.
