The Add-on builder could do a few things nicer in terms of pre-filling the form:
1) If you're logged in, put your name in the "Author Name" field
2) Pre-fill a version number. Using "1.0" would probably be fine.
3) Prefill "Package Name" by stripping non-identifier characters and lowercasing the "Add-on Name" field once you enter text there.
4) Suggest a Unique ID by using packagename@author.name once those two fields are filled. This probably generates a unique enough ID for people that don't know what to put in this field. For bonus points, you could ensure that it doesn't already exist in the AMO db.

The Extension Wizard does 2-4 already, see http://ted.mielczarek.org/code/mozilla/extensionwiz/
