Embedded cck add forms

I've scene remarkably little on embedding a node add form within another but I've been looking into it using Panels to accomplish this. There is a way to have to different node add forms on the same page but the trick is that the lower form is the one that is actually created when you hit submit.

Another problem is that you cannot add specific fields, only the entire form. This issue is supposedly the working are for this feature but you'll notice the comment indicates it is frozen.

Also, here's a relevant comment from MerlinOfChaos.
