Well, the keys end up being stored in the DB, in another table from the 
source of the keys, as ad-hoc field names. You know at a glance the 
context of a stored value. It also makes it easy for reporting.

I can use the DB surrogate key of the source of the dynamic field, but 
then when I store the values I have a N+1 type query to get the field 
names or I have to get all of the keys and then find them in a List or Map 
object for each form field so that I have the label value to store in the 
final table. That's a lot of extra work, which is why it isn't desirable. 
Ultimately, I guess this will be what I have to do since this doesn't 

Do we call this a bug?
