Cheap hack way to clear a form?

I accidentally figured out a sort of hack way to clear a form. I saw
you can write javascript to do this, but if you re render the form in
a partial with a different name for the form like
name=‘something224554’ based on a random number, it clears the form
(at least in FF). I am curious how acceptable or lousy way people
might think this is.

It’s clever but unnecessary. already exists in
HTML, and has the same effect.
