public/internal properties

Our software has many properties that are:

get: public
set: internal (in C#)

In our VB documentation (in a modified "prototype" style), these are being displayed as:

Friend Set

As far as I can see, the caller doesn't need to know anything about the "Friend Set" attribute. If he can't set the property value, then he doesn't need to know that it's settable, does he ??

So, I'd like to get rid of the "Friend Set" text.
Is there any way to do this ?

That currently is not possible.  The syntax generators have no information about visibility settings with regard to including or excluding elements so MRefBuilder would most likely need to be modified to either include or exclude such getter/setter information in the reflection data based on the visibility settings such as whether or not /internal+ was specified as a command line option.
