I am wanting to create a "user" - configurable Custom Retention Formula? Something like a simple version of the rules that Excel and other applications have which displays something like:

Field:_______ Equals:_________

Is it possible to use something like Custom Properties added to webparts ( http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd584174%28office.11%29.aspx ) with Custom Retention Policies?

I am looking for something fairly simple or it won't really be worth the development time for this particular project.


I found the following, but it looks like you have to do it when adding the Formula to a content type or list through code, which is not exactly "user"-configurable. I am looking for some way to set this up so it can be set through the UI that allows you to add custom retention formulas, if possible.
