No player will ever have the ability to see this flag without the use of dev-level debug commands.

This flag is read by one power, and only one. That power, is this doff. If it attempts to proc again, it looks for the flag on the target. If the flag is present, the proc is discarded instead of being applied. If the flag is not present, the proc goes off, buffs are stripped, a flag is applied, and the whole process repeats.
