OK, with Steve's proposed refinement, we'd end up with this:

Where accessibility APIs allow nodes to be marked as hidden, User Agents are
encouraged to expose the full semantics of hidden="" elements when they are
referenced via relationship attributes.
This allows Assistive Technologies to access the content structure upon user
request, while keeping the content hidden in all presentations of the normal
document flow.

The following example shows a hidden label element that is referenced by an
input element, and whose full semantics could be exposed to Assistive
Technologies while still remaining hidden in all presentations of the normal
document flow.

  <label for="test" hidden>label</label>
  <input type="text" id="test">
