Sylvain, this trick is also good and should be sufficient for my issue. I think I'll try to implement it (sorry Aurélien!) as I really like to control the display through uicfg.

This is an option, though I would rather suggest the following:

class DegreeAttributeView(EntityView):
    __regid__ = 'degree'
    __select__ = is_instance('Airport') & match_kwargs('rtype')

    def entity_call(self, entity, rtype, **kwargs):

_pvdc = uicfg.primaryview_display_ctrl
_pvdc.tag_attribute(('Airport', 'coordinate'), {'vid': 'degree'})

This should be enough for most places, but not all like printable_value.
If this is not enough to you, then go for Aurelien'suggestion (but think
to test edition :p.
