No harm in that.  The DG was written to support both list and form row 
types only because at the time the LC field object didn't allow 
independent column alignment, needed for financial apps and others where 
text may be left-aligned while numbers need to be right-aligned.

Now that we have the tabAlign property we can use LC's native field 
object for a wide range of cases we used to have to use the DG for.
