Topic form object
I suggest to develop a suitable object of type Topic form.
The Topic form menu item straight from the component is pretty handy, but sometimes you need an addressable object.
For example I rely heavily on the List of tagged items menu items, and, of course, I can't list a feature that has no tag nor type.
This would also open to the possibility for multiple forms, ideally with some degree of customization.
The development for this feature is completed. The new Topic Form module will be available from v3.4.0.
