wp-admin/user-edit.php needs code formatting and ways to control what is in the form

The file wp-admin/user-edit.php is a great big mess... It's hard to get around the code because it's not well formatted and there's little inline documentation.

Furthermore it's hard to control the profile edit form as most of the fields are hard-coded. Appending new fields to the form is possible, but removing existing ones or adding to one of the upper sections proves to be not so straight-forward. There are no filters, nor actions, not even HTML id attributes for simple CSS "disabling" via display:none

For example: I want to disable the "Website" fields since none of my users needs that, but the only way to do it is with a CSS rule like input[name="url"], label[for="url"] { display:none }

The CSS rules get even uglier if I want to hide the whole "Personal Options" section.
