The latest tools for ASP.NET MVC 3 make it extremely easy to get started with a data driven application starting with code.  You can quickly create a model in C#, provide a few simple annotations to specify key values, display names, and validation constraints, and then simple but functional data management screens are a few clicks away.  The result, while easy to produce, is generally good code (though it would be a better design not to call the data context directly from the controller, but rather to inject it via an IRepository interface) that can easily be tailored to suit production requirements.

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.
