I guess I don't understand the question.  If I have a display where the user
types in the customer name, address and telephone number, but they decide
they don't want to see the city field anymore, so the software lets them
drop it off the display?

How would the program deal with an incomplete address?  Just let it flow
through the system that way?

I can understand re-ordering the fields on the display; I've wanted to do
the same thing myself.  It's a fair amount of work to have a completely
user-defined panel, so have a look at UIM and user defined datastream for
some ideas on how to do it.
