Yes, this gets a +1 from me. It's either this, or create multiple "Unknown" topics in any sort of mystery, having the real names as an unrevealed alias. Either let us reveal snippets without revealing topics, or let us choose which alias to reveal as the topic name.

If this was the case, you could set the alias to "Unknown".

Sleet was enjoying a tasty beverage at his local tavern, when a Tarrasque showed up in the local area. He managed to valiantly get on it's back and ride it. How he did it is a mystery to this day...

Correct - but sometimes players (and their characters) pay no attention to clues jumping up and biting them. If they (the players, not the characters) later ask me if they remember anything of relevance from the last week, I might say "you don't remember" (though more often I would give them a hint they apparently missed something when they visited there and there).

If the players remember I would never make them un-remember.

Sorry, back to topic again.

Legend has it, that the Tarrasque is a huge fighting beast, perpetually hungry.
Sleet entered History when he managed to get on the back of a Tarrasque only to be ridden out of History shortly after.

Using Realm Works, Worldographer (Hexographer 2), LibreOffice, Daz3D Studio, pen & paper for the realm World of Temeon and the system LEFD - both homebrewed.

+1 for a good solution to this. I'm a touch fuzzy on all the alias work as I haven't needed it myself but...

I think that if revealing the topic name was its own piece separate from the overriding 'The players know SOMETHING in here' reveal that currently shows the name, it would be a solid start but that more could/would be useful.
