Currently, form elements in the CMS are set to "width: 100%; max-width: 512px".
Because the width in this case applies to the whole form width (as no containing element overrides it),
the max-width of 512px always applies. Including the label space of ~180px, this
makes for a minimum form width of around 700px - much larger than necessary for most fields.
This is particularly a problem in smaller forms such as the file info on uploaded fields (in UploadField).
Use the https://github.com/silverstripe-labs/silverstripe-frameworktest module to ensure all combinations of fields work correctly with any style changes.
Remember: The goal is to make field styles easier to customize (e.g. indent+nest field groups visually),
not to add a big pile of CSS to make it pixel perfect. Ideally we end up with less CSS than we have at the moment.

Moving out of milestone, not important (enough) until we want to do side-by-side previews.
