The only thing that worries me is how pullquotes might be done in the
future. If they were achievable through css generated content, for example,
would the author identify the quote inline and the duplicate presentation
would happen through some other display element that would be aria-hidden?
Similarly, they could be done with javascript even now, as it's more in the
stunted world of epub rendering that that's not currently viable.

It's an argument for placing the hiding on the author, as it could have
unintended consequences across all web content.

The reason we have suggested that pullquotes be hidden in some way is that
they duplicate content. 

James, based on discussions with users of AT, we concluded that most will
find pullquotes irritating and/or confusing because they duplicate existing
content. So, they might provide emphasis, but we'd like the default for AT
to be not displayed. How can we make that work?

Sometimes they aren't purely decorative. At a minimum, they provide
emphasis. Arguably, they could be navigable, too. Similar to headings or
images, but probably not recommended to subclass landmarks.
