Allow complete hiding of goals
The current concept of secret goals is strange. If I don't want others to see my goal, I normally don't want others to know that there is a secret goal either.
The current concept actually hinders sharing of goals, because I don't want to receive questions from friends etc about those secret goals.

This is absolutely right. There's just a specific reason we've been slow to address this, and I'm not sure it's actually relevant anymore, so I'm glad you brought it up! Originally it was very confusing if you went to your goal gallery and didn't notice you weren't signed in. If you had an emergency day on a secret goal and you went to your gallery and saw no goals in the red you'd think you were safe. With the masked-bee secret goals, you immediately see that you need to sign in to actually see where you stand.
Probably the solution is to make it obvious in other ways if you're signed in or not, but that takes some thought... Unless it's already a non-issue. Is it? I'm not sure anymore...
In the meantime you could perhaps employ snark. "Oh those? I'm beeminding my murderous rage fits when people (or governments) invade my privacy!"
(For real though, really appreciate the feedback here.)
