Is possible to add manage code to Infopath LIST forms. We want to validate data that goes beyond what InfoPath can do out of the box.

I would like to customize the "new" form on a SharePoint list that has some columns that use managed metadata term sets as options. Unfortunately, when I do so, I get the message:
"InfoPath cannot generate a form template for the SharePoint list."
The following fields in the SHarePoint list are not supported because of their data type and will not be available in InfoPath Designer:
This error message seems to be pretty self explanatory, but it boggles my mind that this would be the case. Can I really not customize my list "new" form in Infopath if I am using columns with managed metadata? Any workarounds?
I am posting this here, because the error message is a little misleading: It will say that you may have an incompatible field types, corrupt fields, or fields are mandatory and should not be. As a remedy it's suggested to either make them non-mandatory fields
or to delete them and recreate them.
Solution: Just lookup to your field without the "link to item" option.
Is this possible? I can submit the data source just fine using custom action rules either from a submit button on the form or from the submit button from the tool bar.
But when I try to use C# nothing below works, Main Connection is my data source. I get unhandled exception errors when I run the form in debug
AdoSubmitConnection sc = (AdoSubmitConnection)this.DataConnections["Main Connection"];
WebServiceConnection sc = (WebServiceConnection)this.DataConnections["Main Connection"];
FileSubmitConnection sc = (FileSubmitConnection)this.DataConnections["Main Connection"];
However I can send an email just fine using ;
EmailSubmitConnection sc = (EmailSubmitConnection)this.DataConnections["Email Connection"];
Any help would be greatly appreciated
