    Meh. It's a cute CSS trick, but I don't think it takes us any closer to correctly solving
the problem.
    
    IMO, each sensor / CK (regardless of its name) should be optionally annotable as `@Sensitive`
(redacted with `*` chars) or `@Hidden` (not even shown). It's up for discussion what should
be visible to other Brooklyn entities (esp. those in different apps within the same server
session), and what should be presented over the REST interface.
    
    Some might argue that it's unacceptable to be able to access certain values client-side,
even if it involves javascript hackery or viewing the HTML/JSON sources.
