Most folding is designed for hiding sections of computer code.  But
you are right that this would be ideal in some ways.  There is a patch
for vim that will let it hide code within a line, as well as (as is
usual) whole lines, but it is quite a pain to get working properly.  I
thought that a LaTeX solution might provide a more portable solution.

I haven't looked at LyX option because of other packages I often have to use.
