The only way I can think of that is localisable without code change would be 
to add a few fields to the nodes (eventually hotspots) table (custom1, 
custom2, custom3).  Then in network configuration have a checkbox "use 
custom1" and a field custom1 label which would link a TrivialLangstring to be 
used as a label if the field is used.  In css the id would be custom1 or some 

As a further extension, there could be a checkbox to disable any standard 
field that is not to be used for any specific network.

Even if we do this, it remains important to keep improving our conceptual 
model for hotspot information if we ever want to have this info exchanged 
automatically, the custom1 and such will never be exchangeable.
