We are using metadata to enrich the info around given documents. Because you can only search on one namespace at the time via metadata search, we have quite a list of keys for a given namespace.
We are sharing the documents with our clients, for whom some of the keys in the metadata are not relevant for client use but only for our internal organisation.
So the idea is to have the option to indicate that a certain key is only to be used and searched on for power users. If not is availiable to all.
Thanks for the feedback, @Sven Cornelis1 - I can definitely understand how this would be useful in the scenario you describe. We're going to be working on some updates for custom metadata soon and I'll make sure that the team looks at this request to consider it.
