That's not always True. For example in XEP-0128, we get a result form 
without having previously requested anything, so we have no way to know 
which type of field it is.

This is a problem currently in Gajim as our DataForm parser accept 
several values element only in list-multi. So it doesn't parse correclty 
dataforms from XEP-0128. So we can't compute correclty caps hash (it 
contains those values)

But I'm not sure it's a good thing to guess field type from the number 
of values elements in it ...
