Hi. Yes, Bruce is correct here. There is no code that I know of in SA to allow for a specialized forms mode, so there really can't be any kind of comparison there. FS is using their own code to perform the forms mode feature so it's not like Serotek or any other company is taking that code and modifying it in some way or another. The 2 approaches are just different. Neither one is right or wrong, they're just different and you just need to figure out which is right for you in a given situation.

If System Access had a forms mode, and if they had a feature to automatically take you out of it, and if that feature were called auto-forms-mode, and if they had that feature pateneted, you would have a point. But since none of the above is the case, you don't.
