Yes indeed, so I would not expect to create a button in the server
but as I pointed out, fields are NOT ONLY part of the GUI, theyr'e are ALSO
a very common DATA holder.

as an example, fields can be created INVISIBLE.

So creating fields can be handy for :
-- remaining compatible with standard scripts
-- simplifying tasks for people who would want to get the stack from the
server, work on it and put it back there (avoiding turning  custom props
into fields on downloading the stack). 
-- and keeping in line with the original spirit of the hypercard heritage

Now I reckon things are now usable as they are and it's a a great step
