Hi Yuval,

To stop $form->model->update() from using a field's value, set
    $element->model_config->{read_only} = 1;

To force it to use an alternative value, set
    $form->add_valid( $nested_name => $value );

I hope this helps - I wasn't able to follow exactly what's happening, and why.
If this is no use, can you try me again :)
