Thank you for pointing this recipe out. I smoothly upgraded from EditTitle
and easily added Description field. I configured it so values are stored
only in page attributes. Autofilling of titles is also useful.

As to handling of PTVs, I think, it would be better to support general
metadata section which does not clutter other text (similar to e_notes of
EditMore recipe) because PTVs are usually different on different pages and
separate fields for individual PTVs would require maintaning of several
versions of EditForm.

Thank you for all you recipes,
