    My experience is that fine-grained row-level permissions causes enough trouble with limited access scopes all by itself. At our shop we avoid it as much as we're able using other strategies. Adding true field-level permissions would only aggravate that issue.

    I recommend using client-side scripting to query the user permissions and to dynamically show/hide fields. That's what we do and it works fine.

    If you needed more rigid security, separate out those fields into another list based on roles and again use client-side scripting to dynamically query and add those fields to your form.

    Once you've configured these things once you'll have the basis of a reusable library for doing it again and again.
