"Form sprints" - WTF?

On the Trainingpeaks/Friel training plan today is Form Sprints: "FORM sprints. Warm-up & then do 6-8 x 8-12 second sprints. Slight downhill or with tailwind. Emphasize FORM--not power. 3-5 minute recoveries after each form sprint." What is good form in a sprint?? There's more to it than getting out of the saddle and busting a lung?
