It is important to check what data is to be publicly available (for OPAC usage, for example) and which won't ('ip', for example). The attributes that are not intended for 'all users', should be marked required: false on the spec. The controllers should take care of getting rid of those attributes.

We could consider adding new metadata to the schema files, as is_boolean (for example is_public).
