ok. makes sense.
I was just thinking:  maybe we should introduce something like a "type" 
where user could choose from (e.g. a drop down). This way, it would be 
easy to change from one type to another
without deleting and re-inserting fields.. it would be easier to 
maintain and extend. I am not sure about the usability, though.
