Bug Description

Design Change

To accommodate the new design for revealing the indicators they should only be marked as visible if they contain a useful state for interaction. They'll still be available to the user, so they must also when marked as invisible still contain their menu items.

On the phone, the bluetooth indicator's already following the policy of "visible only when bluetooth is enabled", which follows the "Indicators: RTM Usability Fixes" doc.
