These are the rules I'm trying to follow when deciding about hidden prefs.

- The pref should be useful to a lot of people. Prefs has a mantainance cost, so
their number need to kept to a very limited number.
- The pref should not be a work around for a real problem. Most users will not
be able to use the workaround.

Additionally, some admin related prefs (like lock down) should not be exposed
in the epiphany ui, but I guess at some point a separate interface to edit them
would be desiderable. (or maybe gconf-editor can be that interface)
