    Not all field names are easily human readable.

    Having a setting at the data layer would allow a user to set the field label ONCE and have the label propagate to all instances of the field on any layout.

    Rule should be that if label/alias exists that it supersedes the standard label.

    Manual label editing on a layout should take precedence over anything just like it is now.

    Furthermore if the label could be a calculation then the label could be very flexible and programmatically responsive.

    Possible extensions are:

    1. Create FieldLables and FieldLabel design functions

    2. Get(ActiveFieldLabel) function.

    3. Field label could also be returned with the schema definitions available via ExecuteSQL()
