If you think about it, the only way to do that is to make things even
more complicated than they already are by separating out the rest of
the structure from the ID, mask, and setup functions. At that point,
what if someone has just one change to the other values in the structure?
They'll have the same complaint as you have, and they'll want it split
in an entirely different way.
