Maybe. This is little app [1] that Phillip did does all the CRUD
basically. So it has a add form and a edit form which uses the
default_edit_form.pt (since it is default).

IIRC, yes. All edit forms will use that template to render the form.
If you want to override it so it can be integrated in your skin for
example, you just need to override the template variable in your edit
form class. Take a look at grok.EditForm in components and look for
default_form_template variable and it should enlighten you....a little
