I'm working on the OPT_BOOLEAN replacement as well, but the 
OPTION_BOOLEAN seemed as an easier start (way less until completion)

There should be no change in semantics.
All those which now use the OPT_HIDDEN_BOOL have had 

But your concern sounds more like you'd dislike the
appearance of OPT_HIDDEN_BOOL because you'd want to remove the

those were hidden due to their historical nature and there is always
a non-hidden equivalent being better worded.
