This continues to be a very minor issue, but perhaps it's still useful
if I share my findings. The good news first: there already is an
attribute to drop the name hint, namely

  ...[untagged "name"]

Now the bad news: just like your suggestion of [THEN asm_rl], this
doesn't get rid of the metis warning, but merely changes it to

  Unused theorems: "??.unknown"
