the term "hidden meta-data" is pejorative, and not an accurate descripton
of attributes such as @summary -- rather than use the term "hidden 
meta-data" i propose a terminology switch to "discoverable meta-data", 
which means it doesn't matter if it is displayed visually or not, but 
in a manner in which the user can readily access it in accordance with 
that user's individual preferences

You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of
focus.                                           -- Mark Twain
