Purpose of "SUMMARY" flag

What is purpose of the "SUMMARY" flag? Can it be removed? How does one stop it from coming back?
The SUMMARY flag on a filed indicates that the field is not rich text and, most importantly, that it can be displayed in views and folders. You can modify the value by getting the field as a NotesItem and using the IsSummary property. The Notes Client automatically sets this flag for certain field types.

If you create a new item using New, using LotusScript, the IsSummary property for the item defaults to False. When you create a new item using the AppendItemValue method in NotesDocument, or the extended class syntax, the IsSummary property for the item defaults to True.
