Hiding certain field contents without encrypting them

Is there a way to hide the contents of certain fields (or entire fields) from the Document -- Properties window (Alt+Enter), other than encrypting them?
Other than using the Readers field to protect the data or using encryption on the fields, there is no standard way of doing so. However, there are ways to get around it, of course. One way is to store the actual field values in another document, which is not visible to the end-user. When the originating document is opened, it checks the user credentials or roles and performs a lookup in the other document to retrieve the values. Upon saving the document, you can than parse the newly entered values back again to the document in the background.
