     I wonder. It might also be idiomatic to Klingon to say, "That data keeps
something secret." In other words, there is a secret kept in the data.
Earthers see "secret" as an aspect of the data, while Klingons might see
"secret" as a thing unto itself, which is contained within the data.
     What do others think?
