Users have been, since time immemmorial, using various hacks to hide unnecessary profile fields from the profile edit page. This usually involves unreliable methods such as hiding a table row with jQuery, by counting its index.

Different blocks on the profile edit page are already grouped into tables. Simply adding meaningfull class names to the tables would give reliable and direct access to them via CSS and Javascript, and save a lot of pain to those who need to selectively hide certain fields.
