Here's a first cut at methods, events and actions that would be disabled in hidden content. I think that methods which do an action (focus, click, submit, etc.) should be disabled. Most events should still be ok, as they won't occur, that is, you won't get an onfocus event because there is no way to focus the content.  The autofocus attribute should be ignored.  

This could use more discussion.  Thoughts?

I don't think I've seen a bug come in for this.

These are captured in bugs 19277 and 19279, respectively:


There has been discussion on both bugs.
