When a project / tracker has an important number of custom fields, the issue presentation (when creating / visualizing) is "flat" making it difficult to follow. Having the possibility to group some custom fields in sections / panel will improve readability and user experience. An example of presentation is given in the attached file.

Maybe another solution is to have horizontal separators + title (sections). It might be simpler to implement like a "dummy" field in the list of custom fields. The separators become visible if any custom field is following and are hidden otherwise. No empty sections are allowed. This would also help increasing readability in the case of big amount of fields.

Maybe this patch can be useful.
It adds new tab to settings, allows to move custom fields and separate(or not separate) them with blank divs.
