as a CQ security administrator, I want the ability to enable a query to run in privileged mode

CQ security administrator, I want the ability to enable a query to run in privileged mode, such that non-privileged users can see selected fields in hidden records

We want this ability for cases where a record contains a mix of secure and non-secure information. The security administrator would determine what fields are allowed to be shown to any user, and would approve queries that had only those fields in the display list. Once approved, any user can run the query and see those fields in the result set, and only in the result set. A non-privileged user would not be able to open any record that is actually hidden.
