Why can't I edit custom field types after I've created it?

After you've created a custom field, you can't go back and edit the custom field's type (ex: from text to checkbox, or from date to list), because the data you've entered is a different data type. For example, if you had a "Checkbox" this is a True/False data type. If we allowed you to change the "Checkbox" to a "Date" then it would cause problems.
