Why not make this a bit more generic? If you look at #3218 (shameless promotion), it has this fixed - it can cope with initial data (via self.initial), custom rendering mechanisms etc.

Wouldn't it make more sense to build a common super class for FormPreview and Wizard? There is some shared code in already and since both classes are used in a very similar manner, it would make sense to refactor the common parts out. I will be happy to do the work.

Patch is out of date, but the approach seems fine. Needs tests as well.
