The example warns for modifying the (schema)field attribute on the
form(field) object. This is confusing. But, the FormField objects that
come from grok.AutoFields are wrappers around zope.schema Field
objects. If you would modify the latter, it indeed propagate
throughout the runtime.

The FormFields however are pre-request and do have hooks for local

Does this make it anymore clear?
