in FieldsDisplayLabel. Every field with that domain will receive
"Name" as its label - unless a more specific definition exists for the
field name itself. This is particularly good with FieldsDisplayWidth
and some of the other Fields* properties, since many of these tend to
relate to domains rather than particular fields (whatever they are
