Streamline GUI Generation

I would like to suggest some tuneable guidelines that would result in a more usable GUI out of the gate.

Tables with fewer than 'x' fields and a primary key would be considered lookups and not 'owners' of other tables from a menu and form generation standpoint.

Tables with only foreign keys would be considered child tables and only be displayed on parent pages, not on menus.

Have the ability in the designer to set or override these designations on a table by table basis, preferably in the spreadsheet also.

I'd recommend designations of lookup, parent, child, and relationship for the tables.
