There is nobody better than bbaetz to attempt to convince on the 
performance question.

Additionally, it is not clear to me which approach is better from a 
standpoint of seperating the DBA functions from the web administrator 
functions and providing a migration path that permits existing 1-per-bug 
fields (like URL and Whiteboard) to collapse into customfields.  What 
would that look like?
