Offer current map theme name as dashboard field source

Preamble: No map theme can be perfect. I often switch between themes depending on the activity and route planning intention. I have many themes and each provides a unique combination of properties. I have a set of presets which correspond to my primary activities: walking, cycling, driving, route planning, overall. Each preset is linked to its same-named custom dashboard, and each dashboard has a plain text field with its name. It could be quite useful to display the name of the current theme on the map as a dashboard field.

Suggestion: Add map theme name to dashboard field source list (mockup below) in the Map category:
