Great suggestion.  Another candidate field name that would match ViewpointGroup is 'displayed'.  Whatever we choose, let's please make them match.

Crossed mails, i just implemented 'hidden' over the weekend - no worries, your suggestion can be easily applied.  There are a few other object-model refinements to apply as well.

Comments prior to Friday's call please everyone, we will decide then.

all the best, Don
