I'm a creative services manager and I manage design projects. I want internal teams to use our request form, but I don't want them being able to access the tasks. I can't remove them as followers of the project, because then they can't find it if they need to ask me a question.
So if person A submits a request, then it creates a project. I want them shared on the project so I can communicate with them there, but I want to be able to add private tasks to that same project to assign out the work, but I don't want the requester to see "behind the curtain"
The current way almost seems backwards. You should be able to hide tasks and keep projects visible. Not the other way around.
