Comment (by Bryce C Nesbitt):

 Turns out there IS a hidden state for test.
 Members of the DWG (data working group) can suppress a given note.

 I learned of this only because of some statistics work (See

 It is only matter of time before Viagra spammers discover the notes system
 and have a field day.
