It would be useful to be able to apply formatting to fields in the short description, long description, feature label, etc... For example, let's say I have a field in the layer that is meant to store currency data. I'd prefer to store this in a numeric field, but there is no way to format it for presentation to the user. I want them to see "$1,500.00", but can only show "1500.00" Thus, I have to use a text field. Dates are another data type that would benefit from formatting options. Generally, numeric data should have default options to include comma seperators and number of decimal places to show.
