In this case, they can use insiders, and just put [% IF
UserInInsiderGroup() %] or whatever around the timetracking display
stuff. Same for any field which only requires a binary split like that.
My worry is that having per-field granularity will add to the complexity
without making things more useful.

That's an orthogonal problem to custom fields IMO.
