2.4.5 - Forms assigned to DataObject?

Is it possible to have a Form attached to a DataObject?

I have a ProductPage extending page, which loops through a DataObject called Product.

Each product displayed has a simple form associated with it - kind of like "send me quote" form. I hide each form with CSS and when a product's button is clicked, the form displays and is filled out by the user.

I want the form to be unique to the DataObject so that it can send a reference back in an email to the admin, telling them to provide a quote for that specific product.

If I set up one generic form through ProductPage, how would I know which product the user has selected to be quoted on?

There is no relationship between ProductPage and Product, other than within ProductPage a function is called which returns all Product objects.

I'd be interested to know how others would tackle this issue?
