I've been advocating the use of a "hook" mechanism to permit templates 
that know better to preempt the default handling of the UI for 
customfields on a per-field basis.

<style TYPE="text/css">

Why wouldn't this be just a case of adding a field to the bug activity 
table indicating if the fieldid is a custom field or a standard field?
