Add a Description field for Object Standard Fields

Operational Reporting

A Description field is not available for standard fields (ex: Lead Source) but is available for custom fields. Because of this I have no way of defining the intended use of a standard field NOR can I use it for tracking other important pieces of information associated to that standard field such as Workflow Rules, Workflow Updates, Formula Dependencies, Email Template Dependencies, Reports, etc...  #THINGSANADMINFINDSIMPORTANT

I recently wrote an Idea on the Custom Field Definition Detail page to include important dependency information like this so if you are interested in supporting that idea please look here too:

Thank you!
