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 ...
