Perhaps it would help to link into the rendered spec from the CVS
server at the requested revision:

http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/html5/spec/Overview.html?rev=1.5574;content-type=text%2Fhtml#the-hidden-attribute

Having said that, at least asking for a reversion of a checkin is
fairly unambiguous.

I wish there was a similarly unambiguous details section for the TF's
proposal too. Taken literally as series of edit instructions, it would
result in a spec that defines the meaning of @hidden twice but in
different ways and repeats verbatim the text:

"All HTML elements may have the hidden content attribute set. The
hidden attribute is a boolean attribute."
