Flexible text fields

The upcoming flexible text fields sound very interesting to me
(https://wiki.lyx.org/LyX/NewInLyX24#textfields). Is it possible to 
create an arbitrary custom text with it that can be re-used in sentences 
all over the document?

For example, I decide to define a term, say, "the Strange Hypothesis" 
and insert this field throughout the document. But later on I change my 
mind, and would rather like to use a different name, say, "the Bizarre 
Hypothesis". Could I do this without having to change the definition all 
over the place. And there is another thing that would be nice. As I 
don't capitalize all the words in the name ("the"), it would be great if 
one could choose to (manually) capitalize the name, e.g. at the 
beginning of sentences. Maybe from the field's context menu, similarly 
as with formatted references.

Kind regards,
