OK. Hope you publish those exact data somewhere soon ...

Did you also check what happens with nested hidden/aria-hidden=true? I 
mean: Is one supposed to look inside a hidden/aria-hidden area an 
discover another hidden inside there? Or, is it so that when the outer 
hidden is "flattened", that all the nested hiddens/aria-hiddens are 
flattened to?

Example:

<div hidden id="longdesc">It sees this. <p hidden> But not this?</div>
