Enhancement] When editing Metadata in the Book List

Bug Description

I Edit metadata in the booklist. I press F2 in the first cell I want to edit and then tab to the next cell until I'm done. But when I tab into a 'composite' cell I'm thrown into the Template Editor and when I exit that I get tossed out of Cell Edit mode.

Because the template is an attribute of the custom column (a'la its lookup_name) and not an attribute of individual book, I would never edit a composite column's template from the book list. Maybe some would - but I bet they don't tab into the column, they'd press F2 on the composite column explicitly.

So, I propose a binary tweak that 'allows/disallows' editing of composite column templates from the book list, its default value would be 'allow'. I would change it to 'disallow', then if I pressed F2 on a composite column it would pop a message (perhaps), and a Cell Editing Tab would skip over composite columns.
