Title field hell in Sharepoint lists!

Situation:
While trying to delete the "title" field from any doc lib or list, the 'delete' button missing from the UI.

work around:
Find schema.xml for the coresponding list (located in c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\60\TEMPLATE\1033\STS\LISTS\)
Search , access and delete the field.This will affect the behaviour for all the lists of that type (event,tasks ...). make a backup for the schema.xml, make changes, and save the list as a template; after you make all the mods, start over from this new template
