The PF don't like when the HTML Working Group (re)defines things for them.
Hence I'm not sor sure that there should be a 1-1 mapping. It is even so that
aria-hidden="" is not completely defined yet. And as you have pointed out,
@hidden is boolean, ulike @aria-hidden. (PS: If you write <p hidden> then it
will typically become <p hidden=""> in the DOM.)
