That's the general idea, but we'd like to do that using magritte. Given 
an object (say a IdentificationDocument), with two descriptions - one 
for the type of document and another for the expiry date we'd like to 
control the visibility of the expiry date using magritte and rerender 
the MAContainerComponent of this object with the jQuery load.
