Screenshot illustrating the issue

Description of problem:
There's been change in default column setup in Process Definitions perspective. See screenshots illustrating the issue.

In 6.1.4 the Name and Actions columns were always enabled (it was not even possible to disable Name column). I think it made a lot of sense, because this table is useless unless user knows which process he is starting.

In 6.1.5 the process Name column is disabled by default. It can be enabled (so there is a workaround) but it is DISABLED BY DEFAULT. The table is basically useless without this column enabled, so user MUST enable it if he wants to know which process he is starting.

This is a regression since BPM Suite 6.1.4 most likely introduced by fix to bug# 1276354  which was included in BPM Suite 6.1.5

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
BPM Suite 6.1.5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Authoring perspective and deploy some project with process definition (e.g. Evaluation)
2. Go to Process Management > Processs Process definitions

Actual results:
The Name column is not enabled - it is not clear which row corresponds to which process

Expected results:
The Name column was fixed in previous versions - it couldn't be disabled even if user wanted.

Other perspectives are affected by the change too:
1) Process Instances: The columns Id and Name were fixed (enabled all the time), but are now configurable and disabled by default
2) Tasks: The columns Actions is now Fixed (THIS CHANGE IS DESIRABLE), but was previously Configurable and disabled by default.
