Hm.. now that is an idea...

I would have to depend on referer I guess, but as long as it degraded 

But, why render the page, when I could just parse it to get the field order?
Fun with regexp, or dom :)

It would be a bit of overhead, but so would a php proxy, and the few high-use 
forms I can rewrite anyway.

I think we are onto something here :-D
