"...but the information fed to the addon is not mentioned. ... that information should be freely viewable, yes?"If an addon pulls information from somewhere unknown to the user, then that "somewhere" is hard-coded into the code. Because the addon code must be visible and not obfuscated, it's relatively easy to pull up the source manually and view it at any time. Keep in mind that any "security" the source may have, such as a password, would also have to be hard-coded into the addon.TL;DR -- If the code is visible, the data source is too.
