Is the "raw" MARC view the one you prefer for this? As opposed to this one?

The above view (opac-MARCdetail.pl) respects the visibility settings
you can configure in your MARC framework. So if you edit a tag's
subfield structure and set the "hidden" value so that it does not
display in the OPAC, it won't. However, these rules are not respected
by the "raw" modal MARC view.
