Yes, you can edit it. I want to skip that step by providing a preload
page that, in the following example, just contains {{person}}.
Clicking on "Create new person!" should end up on the rendered new
page, not its edit view.

<inputbox>
  type=create
  width=24
  buttonlabel=Create new person!
  preload=Default person
</inputbox>

Cheers,
  Ingmar
