Reuse User-defined fields in Cloud Application Studio
we are considering the case of extension fields created in Cloud for Customers at the User Interface level.
We discovered (even by reading some articles on the SCN, such as the following: http://scn.sap.com/thread/3438267) that fields created at Key User level are not available to a Developer User, and consequently on the Cloud Application Studio.
But consider the scenario where the Key User adds new fields and later on (maybe 6 months later) would like some development on those fields. Is there any options we can adopt to fullfill this scenario?
We will be waiting for your feedback, and always available for further clarification.

Fernando is right: You can create this "References to Customer-Specific Fields" once in your solution.
BUT: You must create the identical Customer Fields in any tenant in which you want to deploy the solution in advance!!!
The deployment contains this file and it checks if the referenced Customer Fields exist. If not, it will fail.
Apart from this you can use those fields in the same way as the elements you add to a SAP BO direct in the SDK.
