Admin editor/page for "select" Custom Fields

I would love to see an editor in the admin section, similar to milestone/component/priority, for custom fields which are marked "select".
Currently, the admin has to place the list of selectable options into the trac.ini and there is no additional data that can be associated to individual entries beyond "label" (and the ordering).
It would be brilliant to be able to associate extra information to a custom field entry, such as a start/end date. For example, I have created a "workpackage" field and I'd like to be able to add a start/end date to entries, very much like is currently possible for "Milestone"s.
In addition, if a user creates a "Milestone" (e.g. calling it "Deliver") then a page appears at "/milestone/Deliver". It would be good if custom fields produced similar pages, which could be edited with wiki syntax and based on a PageTemplate of the field's name (automatically selected if the page doesn't exist yet, but the field entry does). Obviously, one could expect many query macros to appear here and the ParameterisedPageTemplates plugin would be useful to many people wishing to customise the pages further.
