Ernie, you're over-thinking it. I've been using ACL since I started POTA in March, and have logged over 4,000 POTA contacts. My main screen looks a lot like yours:
I capture the grid, the state, and the county of the park and include them with the log, and I'm in the minority. I'm confident that this will provide the data that 99.99% of your contacts would ever want. Unless there's a new contest I've not heard about, nobody gives a darn what zip code, lat/lon, or city you are working from. 99% of your contacts are only interested in one thing: your park. The county hunters and grid hunters don't hang out on pota.us looking for contacts.
Scott gives us eight custom fields to capture what we want. You need two for the SIG data. That leaves you six more to capture the data that you feel is most important.
Enjoy the park and the contacts you make. Don't get all wrapped up in unnecessary logging complexity. POTA logging is as simple as it gets.
Have fun out there!
