It's a TV show that needs to build mystery and suspense. They aren't going to let the cat out of the bag all at once.
I understand that, but the way the cat was let out of the bag doesn't really fit with how one would expect it to be done. It seems like an important detail like that should have been made known to an "outworlder" who found himself in Kirk's situation. It shows very bad form on the part of the Vulcans and yes I think someone as powerful as T'Pau should show some concern for a high-ranking member of Starfleet, if not for diplomatic reasons than at least out of a sense of good taste and manners.
