Allow inherited custom field layouts that can be extended for specific products

We would like to have a core set of common fields used in the field layouts for all products, but there will still be a need to support custom fields needed only by a subset of products. If we could have products inherit a custom field layout and then extend it rather than clone it completely, it would help us maintain those common fields more easily.

    This would be a nice enhancement.
    We want to ensure all our products are using a core list of fields that can be used in common reports.

    However they also all have their product-specific fields so we have to create multiple Layouts and if we want to change it at the top level all the layouts needs to be updated one by one.

    Inherits and extend the layout would be great
