I don't know, but I'll take the mathematical point of view
Can you make a partition which is designed to be visible to
any application that's interested in partitions, visible to
some of these applications and not to others?
I would expect not.
You can make a partition hidden, but then nothing will see
it (AFAIK). You have to unhide the partition to reveal it
