ePDM Variables, MUST be on Data Card?

So, I'm testing my vault, and I have a variable 'CleanUp' that was on my data card, mainly so I could check its status during workflow/dispatch development. I have my workflow working, but I don't want the 'CleanUp' variable value (auto set to yes/no) visible.  It's only there to drive an automatic transition.

 

If I remove the Variable box from the Data Card, then it doesn't set the variable value in the transition.  My testing is telling me that a Variable MUST be on a data card to be added to the file as a Custom Property.  Is this correct?  If so, I've missed this requirement in the Help documents.

 

Is there a solution to hide the Variable?  I'm looking at placing it on the Data Card, then resizing the card to hide it.

 

How do you do it?
