A field that is not in the view does not appear in the Field menu for an Advanced Search. So this might be a good way to limit what users are searching on. Of course if you have a savy user they can always type the field name with quotes (e.g. ‘Wigit Name’) but I haven’t found anyone who does that.

The main advantage is the fact that the field isn't taking up any screen real estate anywhere on the form. The object still exists on the form, is still transferred to the client, so it's not a transport advantage, but the fact that the field's not cluttering up the display is a maintenance advantage :)
