Well, POST data is actually delivered as-if a hidden query string. So,

Mmm. Well, they both deliver data, so I suppose you could say
that. Angels, pins, tomato, tomahto, whatever
Look, it can and does work, and there’s no reason to believe it will

Are they posting to different actions?
Of course. Why else would you do it?
Do they expect to know the contents of fields in the other form?
Not in any example I’ve developed (or seen).
Should the user expect to know
the behavior of hitting enter when in one form or the other (can they
really tell they are in a different form)?
If they don’t understand what’s going on, someone’s done a crappy
job of UX design, but that applies to so many things
