Yes, hiddenparts is fully implemented the normal way. hiddenresource is 
still only half-way there and should not be shown in PARM.

On the other hand, hiddenresource (like hidden/encrypted URL) has the 
interesting feature of recursively being inherited by nested folders, 
meaning, you can hide a whole tree with one click. All "normal" 
parameters only work within the immediate content of a folder.

One of these days, we are going to sort out all of this.
