I'm amazed that a longer field length is not possible.

Yes, see RSGB HFCC website - includes examples for CCC in Cabrillo format.
I logged call/serial and outputted in cabrillo, then added the rest manually
with Wordstar and Notepad. Hope I got the final score right. Remains to be 
seen whether RSGB can read it or not - otherwise they're in for a paper log.

It would at least be easier if one could write "ARS" "RC" and "ARC" instead
of the full Monty - what a pain. Likewise the names of some clubs eg "Enfield,
Southgate and district Wireless, plasticine and electronics society" don't 
help either. Wonder if my use of the "&" symbol will upset them.
