I think it's right only in simple cases
If your "prepare" means:
- Putting in the request a collection for a select (for example)
- Initializing the form with data from DB or any other source
You are doing 2 things completely different (logically)
in the same action and that's why you need a workaround 
with hidden fields or hard coded path or....

The cleanest solution is to separate this "prepare" action in 
2 actions. Too much? 
OK! Choose any other way you like! But it won't be "clean".
