This is not comprehensive, but here are a few things I see at first glance:

* Doesn't support walking up the parents of the field for /DA information
* Doesn't support field attributes
         border style (width, color, etc.)
         background color
         flags (password, comb, etc.)
* Doesn't support multiple line fields
* Only works for text fields - no support for buttons, combos, popups, etc.
