Because of the ease of accidentally filing a public Security issue (relative to Bugzilla), it would be nice to have a more prominent indicator of public vs not than the grey-on-grey globe icon plus text. For example, a banner color change or a background color change would be nice. That would make it much easier to notice when something is amiss with the view permissions on a task. Even if the cat is out of the bag, just knowing that helps us take appropriate action.
I imagine that wouldn't be a feature that the Phabricator folks would want as a standard styling change, but it would be nice to at least have well-placed class markers such that it'd be possible for us to override the default style sheet to get the styling we want. The class could be added any time that the issue is not "public". Even though that may sound overly specific to our use case, just knowing how other organizations use public/private issue trackers (I've administered public/private installations at two other orgs), I suspect this has general applicability.
This all assumes, of course, that "we" want it, which the "we" right now is only Chris Steipp and myself, but I file this partly to gauge if "we" is ultimately bigger than two people.
