Just to make it clear I am talking about the radiation from distant stars, galaxies on hitting the heat shield and bouncing into the primary and secondary mirrors causing massive glare and multiple aberrations and distortions making it useless.

Sounds like a really interesting job noscopebacon.
As to why certain aspects and technologies pertaining to James Webb Telescope are classified.
I don't really have i clue, if were to speculate i would say its in case the telescope observes something interesting that may be dangerous our influence our way of life in ways we have yet to imagine.
"They" like to control the narrative, point of fact they have to control our hearts and minds else we might decide to burn down some ivory towers.
80% of this world still subscribe to organised religious practices in one form or another, if say that scope manages to determine if there is life elsewhere in our universe that might piss off or upset a lot of people.
Again just speculation.
