comment What must I take into consideration when designing a UI around a 0..1:1 relationship?
I disagree with this approach in general. Separating optional fields will not solve the different null interpretation problem. If you have 100 tables with optional columns will you be adding another 100 tables of optional columns?

comment Structuring an input file
Your generally want to store data is a safe storage that can be queried with ease and can have its data protected from tampering as much as possible. Regular text files on a pc are generally not protected (unless placed in secure folders) and they can be tampered with (say by removing a comma or a quote) which may result the program to fail. Also, regular files don't offer flexible querying other than text search and Excel filtering. A database may be an overkil for your project but may be a good suggestion for a serious product.

comment Structuring an input file
For your specific problem, you could use a GUI using something like .NET or Swing also you could use Excel. Having captured data in the GUI, you can validate it and commit it to either a file or a database. It may be useful to group inputs in a database rather than in files. However, this is not always the case.
