Do you mean visibility, or would legibility be better here? Maybe I can
see a clock from 100m away, but it is not actually useful until it
becomes legible at 20m. 

You use the word "readable" (=legible) yourself.

For example, it could apply as well to 'advertising' objects (but it likely could apply to more cases). And in that case we could rather write something like : 
> VISIBILITY=* is used in connection with publicly visible devices or features to display their visibility/readability. -visibility=house Entity (or device or feature) is readable from up to 5m (targeted mostly for pedestrians, or bikers)
