Give option to remove "Always Displayed" fields from page layout

Custom Schema

There are some record types where it doesn't make sense to have some fields "Always displayed" (identified in bold on the legend). Give us the option of what we want to always be displayed. I have custom fields to replace some of these standard fields, and in other instances, I just don't want to display the Account name for example.
