I am a little confused by this one. Firstly, Shelly's issue with @hidden seemed
to be accepted and then rejected? I am still a little in the dark as to the
usefulness of the attribute either way. 

FWIW I don't think it has a semantic meaning at all - but it /may/ have a
certain useful that does strike me as being of a presentational nature - but
again that would have to be demonstrated. I don't see how it is an improvement
on HTML 4 and the @hidden seems to duplicate what can already be done with CSS.
