I think both should be always the same because you also have the same
database table fields.

There is a 'showRecordFieldList' in each TCA. This should be used to
make some fields to disappear in every frontend application if it is not
listed here.

I have only seen
within extensions.

An other solution would be to introduce a new file ext_tca.php within an
extension. And only these extensions would use the new feature.
