Is there an API that would help analyze the mapping between list columns and FormVariables used in the FormData field of a Nintex Forms enabled list?

I need to implement a utility that would help changing content types in a consistent manner and mapping the old and new Form variables correctly. For instance, previous form used FormVariables to ensure attachments of certain purpose like a document set. At some point we need to use another form in the same list, and the attachment names may need to be moved to other form variables.

I understand that I'll need to do some sort of an XSLT transformation, but if other content types are involved, I'd like to the utility to be smart enough to auto-map similar fields if they only differ a little bit.

Any hints appreciated.

You may be able to accomplish this using the Forms stuff in Workflow Analyzer. There is a mockup object model for Nintex Forms that you can use Linq to query into to build a dictionary for mapping purposes.
