That's how I would rule as well.

Interesting. My guess would be it's just turned over and revealed to
all, but what you suggest does spice things up a little. However, I
feel the hush-hush way of playing it would be a little complicated and
akward for larger groups or tournament play. Adds a little to strategy
to try and decide whether to go for it or wait and remember/prepare
for what the guy before you faced (kinda like a mass recon).

This one's in the FAQ at FASA. Yes it got fixed in the printing, it
costs 6 nu yen.

I'd say the owner of the Objective or Challenge being rolled for.
