I have used your method for custom build properties in the Force Build
page as we required a way to force a build to do a clean build first,
amongst other properties that we wanted to send to the Bots on a force

On Wed 15/11 I noticed that a Paul Gain has posted a patch that allows
generic properties to be used in BuildBot.  I tried this out as I don't
like changing the BuildBot code every time I get requests for new
properties on the force page, and it works beautifully. It allows you
once the patch is applied to specify the properties you want on the
force build page in the master.cfg.  The use of radio buttons, and
checkboxes are implemented along with text fields.  

Give it a try.  Its definitely something I would like to see in a
BuildBot release.
