Probably - but it seems it would be a fair amount of work. Feel free to 
look into it if you like.

Because it's dynamically generated, and any changes would either be lost 
if the user changed tab, or would have to be reverse engineered back 
into the other dialog controls. Also, on some dialogs there are 
placeholders included in the code for cases when we have multi-step 
queries that are tied together by a generated ID. IF the user mucked 
about with those, it could break things particularly spectaularly.
