processability of attribute fields as a property of styles

Let's assume we have a shapefile layer with a complex style. Furthermore we have loaded an according csv table layer which shall be attached to the attribute table of the shapefile layer. We have joined the csv table and save the joined layer to a new shapefile layer. Now we copy the mentioned complex style to the new shapefile layer because we need it.
The result is that the attached fields are not processable in spite of being dbf based now. The reason is: processability is a part/property of the style. CSV fields are not processable - they are "read only" fields. This property is transmitted by the style to the new shapefile layer, which should be completely processable. The only possibility to make the attached fields processable is to create a new style.
So maybe it would be a good idea to exclude the processability property from the style definition and implement it otherwise.
