Non-broadcasting SSID are just about no security at all.

Why did they leave this out?
When there are dozens of free utilities available on the Internet that will reveal a "hidden" network in seconds, it is of little value as a security "feature".
As far as leaving the "feature" out, are you saying that the settings for the feature were left out......or the settings for the feature are there....but they do not work?

Really?? and I was thinking about getting one to extend my network from my AirPort Extreme. Not if I have to broadcast my SSID

Yes you can. Go to your AirPort Utility, click on the "Wireless" button, then click on "Wireless Options" at the bottom. Select the third item checkbox "Create a hidden network". Done.
