And in essence, that method should really be renamed, as it can create
any TComponent instance - it doesn't really relate to TForm (or any
forms) in general. The same goes for LCL's Application.CreateForm() -
but the latter will probably stay for that annoying "delphi
compatibility" thing. But the TCustomWebApplication is not a Delphi
clone (as far as I know), so why stick to the crappy method name? Name
is something more appropriate.

I fully agree. It points developers in the wrong direction.
