Unfortunately, this parameter is required whenever you need to direct opendoc.htm to a QVS that isn't residing on localhost. AFAIK that's the case for every user that clicks the link in an email message on his/her desktop/laptop.
Why is server SVRLAB02 a secret? Does nobody know where the QlikView documents are hosted? Or is this security elevated because you are dealing with external users that may know about the AP host but everything else should be hidden?
As far as I know you can’t modify the invite url but it has been a while since I last looked at it.
But if revealing the hostname is a issue I would be careful anyhow, don’t we leak that information through the document info menu anyhow?

It only shows the short host name, not the FQDN. Thinking outside the Square, why not just make sure the host name doesn't identify the server from outside. i.e. if the server name is ABC123 then that will mean nothing unless people are on your network. If its an internal IP address, it won't resolve externally if someone tries to work it out.
