Google Docs live forms - getting user feedback online

I just noticed Google Docs has a new feature in the Sharing section of a
spreadsheet, called "Invite people to fill out a form".
It seems to me like a pretty neat way to get online feedback/info from your
users. Of course, it has all the limitations a feedback form has as far as
quality and quantity of information, but I'm thinking it could be useful
when forms is what you need anyway.
For example, I was just in the middle of editing some feedback forms as word
docs (e-mailing is the best shot I have to get any feedback in this
project). What I would have to do is send the docs via e-mail, get them back
filled in and then centralize all the data gotten. With this feature, all
the summarizing seems to be done automatically.
Also, for small websites that don't mind using Google stuff, a feedback link
in the Contact section could lead to this easily created, easily managed
Any thought / experiences?
