Description

I would like to be able to specify the list of keytypes that a user can pick from to load data.
It would be a list separate from the keytypes used in the admin console.
Within the Admin Console their are keytypes for unique data and transposed tables, such as objectID.

I would like a list of common data types with easy to read names such as:

Census 2000 Tract ID: ct_id
Census 2010 Tract ID: ct10_id
MA Municipalities: muni_id
US States: state_fips

This would make it easy for a user to understand and join their data to the spatial geometries so it can be displayed on a map.
