(In reply to comment #5)
> 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">
> ]]
