One of the new features in ASP.NET MVC 3 is its scaffolding feature, which basically lets you very quickly produce data entry controllers and views based on a particular model, even if you don't yet have a database in place.  This can let you very quickly produce a proof-of-concept, or iterate through some design options, without the need to go through a big process of setting up a database, tables, stored procedures, etc. just to show the customer how the UI might work with a given set of data.  To use this feature, you'll want to get the latest ASP.NET MVC 3 tools.

Title: One model per controller?

Who uses only one model per controller? I tried it and it doesn't work in practice. I have a model for every unique form which typically results in an add model, edit model, view model, listing model and search model (for the listing search form). This tooling would be useful if it prompted for the model class to use for each of operation the controller 'scaffolds' for you.
