submitting forms from one HTML document to another

I was wondering...

While HTML is primarily a markup protocol, the <FORM> tag allows for data 
to be output.  However, data cannot received as input.  I was dreaming 
about all the CGI scripting I could avoid if I could simply pass form 
elements between HTML documents.  I think this would greatly simplify 
website navigation and would make it easier for non-programmers to create 
powerful applications.

Are there any plans for a function like this?
