We don't need the proposed change to the documentation due to the follwoing
- We don't want to impose changes to standard compliant IMAP clients
- It is soley up to the client to decide if a folder should be shown, hidden
or displayed in some special mode e.g. task view, calendar view, contacts
- Typically users can easily hide unwanted folders when using feature like
subscription, local subscription or "groupware folder hiding". The later
implies that Kolab clients implement it.

Actually some clarification and future developement is unavoidable even if
some implementations decide not to implement the most recent version.
