Voting starts in March for the Drupal Association Board election.
If there is some use case or justification for the "field_" prefix on fields created through the UI, please let me know. Otherwise, it seems unnecessary. Fields can be created programmatically without the prefix and they, of course, work fine.
This could be ported to 7.x as well.
Remove the "field_" prefix in field_ui.admin.inc.
Tests should continue to work; no documentation.
