 > What's the use case for an admin-only profile field? It sounds as though
 you want to be able to set notes for a user, or perhaps use the fields as
 a kind of user meta data, perhaps to use in template queries.

 That's what I'm imagining too. And I'm wondering whether this is actually
 the "proper" use for xprofile. Not that there's anything wrong with using
 it this way - but I'm not certain that we need to officially encourage
 this non-standard use with our core options.

 > Can this ticket be closed up in lieu of someone building the proposed
 feature as a plugin to prove the idea?
