Funny. Jeff employs a lot of examples of similar field functionality that are in employed in Sheet Sets.
Jeff's nifty demo trickery to use fields in both Tables and related Labels can come in very handy.
Maybe you are thinking...Yes. We can use fields in blocks and even ACAD dynamic blocks.

Annotative objects are useful in Civil 3D in publication drawings.

Everything we Annotate with them must also be managed and maintained as well.
The Annotative clearly shows the Power of Names.
