You might want to give some consideration to who would also have

Good point, Pete. I have some infrastructure in place enabling administrators to indicate user access rights to fields in standard maintenance programs, but I haven't fully considered how to implement something comparable for user defined fields.

Regarding changing a field definition after it has been initially defined, I think I can be fairly flexible about that, particularly with a browser UI. HTML can be generated on the fly. It's not like a *DSPF object that needs to be recompiled.
