Import contains fields not found in the batch template

After creating a new batch template, a user goes to create an import based on the batch and there are fields that are added to the import setup that were not included in the batch setup.  These fields do not show up when creating a new batch from the template.

There are some additionaal import fields that are required to be included but are not part of the batch template.

Some fields are hidden through the batch grid (when you look at the fields in a batch template), but are manipulated by batch handlers behind the scenes. Since Import can’t use batch handlers (import is not designed that way), there needs to be a way for imports to provide values for these fields. This is why those fields have to show for import.
