Under what circumstances would you want to do this? On individual pages? On every page?

This may just be a problem solved by overriding a helper method.

For example this line in the view https://github.com/radiant/radiant/blob/master/app/views/admin/pages/_fields.html.haml#L20
Uses the meta_errors? helper https://github.com/radiant/radiant/blob/master/app/helpers/application_helper.rb#L135
Which in turn uses meta_visible https://github.com/radiant/radiant/blob/master/app/helpers/application_helper.rb#L125

Does this information solve this for you?

I think it would be useful if this was overridable on Page subclasses. I.e. give the page class an instance á la show_fields? (meta is outdated terminology, isn't it?) that in stock radiant returns false. The meta_visible helper should query this method
Extensions (or PageFactory subclasses) can then easily override it and show the fields dropdown by default if desired.
