New word: unvealed

I was charmed to see a blog use a new word today. Regarding Aberystwyth, which laid off all its traffic wardens in a fit of austerity, it said:
A survey by NCP found it to be the worst place in the U.K. to find parking spaces, and a study in 2006 unvealed that about a third of the drivers on the road at any given time were simply looking for a spot to park. 
 I looked up "unvealed" on Google, and found 41,200 hits. The original words "unveiled" and "revealed" got 79 million and 71 million respectively. I expect this new portmanteau word to go places fast.
