That sounds like a documentation problem to me.

The trouble with copying the code around is that if you decide the CRUD
stuff works for you except you need to change how it gets the form
profile, you can't just override it in one place and make all your
classes use it.  Instead, you have to either change it in multiple
places or hack the code generator, or the generated code into a base
class (in which case it might as well have been one in the first place).
