The idea is that data-type is a more general concept than field-type.

For example, several field-types could refer to the same data-type, 
maybe overriding some of the data-type attributes.

If you're thinking about form fields and what Bruno calls "form beans" 
the boundary can be hard to see, but data-types could also be used to 
automatically generate "business beans" classes or mappings to such
