required gnats fields

There are several fields which gnats requires - those marked with "builtin-name" in dbconfig, such as number, category, synopsis, etc. These fields can be renamed and redefined in our dbconfig files, which we have done quite a bit of for a project for another department to track other types of change requests or problem reports (not software bugs). In some cases, the number of fields they need is less than the number of required fields. So, this may be an obvious, "duh, no, they're required," but is there any way to circumvent those required fields? I've been writing hacks to try to keep the unused fields from showing up anywhere. All of our users go through gnatsweb, so I've written hacks in gnatsweb to keep some fields from showing up, and I'm going to rewrite the mail-format configurations not to use %P but to select just the fields I want to show up. Is there any other way? Some way to simply not use as many fields?
