Autoform without allow/deny?

Has anyone used autoform without using allow/deny?

I’m building something with LOTS of forms and I want to do it the most efficient way possible. I was thinking validated-method + simplSchema + autoform.

Has anyone used this combination before, or used autoform at all without allow deny? Would be cool to see a project that’s used it so I have a reference.

Is there anything other than autoform I should look at?
