The human-reable portion of FieldDefs should go away in favor of a template.
Adding custom fields is not something someone's going to be doing every
day.  Asking someone to edit a template to compensate shouldn't be out of
the question.  If the template mapping doesn't provide an English (or
whatever language) name for a field, we use the computer-readable name for
it from fielddefs until they put it in the template.
