The problem with that particular item is that it is a terrible plan.
Having custom fields come and go from the UI on a per-product basis is
great. Having them come and go from the DB on a per-product basis is a
recipe for dataloss. Once a bug has a custom field, it should be stuck
with that field forever, even if it is moved to a product where that
field is not supported and then back again.
