Just want to note that the "hidden" property already exists:

show_launcher = yes
This key is optional. If not present, or if present with a value of  
"yes", the activity is shown with its icon in the Sugar panel launcher  
and a valid 'icon' key/value pair is required. If specified with a  
value of "no", the activity is not shown in the Sugar panel launcher,  
and the 'icon' key is not required.

Also, I'd name the scripts not "sugar-*-activity" but "sugar-view-*".  
This way they would sort together, be more descriptive, and fit with  
your proposed bundle names.
