Can I have "disappearing spacers" in v7 layouts?

I have a number of dependent fields in various layouts.
For example when I choose Affiliation = Academic three more fields appear.
By making those fields span the 12 "slots" available on one row the whole line disappears when not applicable and does not take up space, which is what I want.

In another case though I have a single field that appears/disappears depending on a dropdown.
To put that on its own disappearing line I have to make it span 12. Which makes for a ridiculously wide dropdown when in reality I would like a 1-column-wide dropdown to appear on its own row yet have the row disappear and not take up space when not applicable. If I make the field 1 column wide and add spacers to the row then the row won't disappear, but rather be a blank row taking up space. If I don't add spacers then the next line will wrap upward. So the only solution appears to be a super-wide dropdown....

Any cleaner solutions?

thanks,
