The "identify feature" tool shows all the informations associated to a feature in alphabetic order based on the database fields' names; it is often helpful to visualize only some fields and with a particular ordering instead.
It would be great if we could specify which attributes to show and their ordering, along with aliases specified for every attribute. Maybe an "accessory table" could be used to do so? In the attached picture I create a possible filtering table where the presence of the "alias" value and/or the value of "display order" could be used to decide if that particular attribute have to be present or not in the informations.

I think there is enough capabilities with custom UI form and the attribute table.
