For me, yes, as respects the concern to cover the two use cases, user
initiated vs. author controlled.

The other question on the TF call this morning was the concern that not
all markup might be available in this approach. Cynthia and Steve were
quite certain that there would not be technical restriction on any
markup. Can you confirm?

Only elements that are is referenced indirectly by a unique identifier (ID) reference or valid hash-name reference will be exposed.  If an author does not wish to have a @hidden element exposed, he may achieve this by not referencing the element.

Only elements that are referenced indirectly by a unique identifier (ID) reference or valid hash-name reference may be exposed at user request.  An author desiring to keep a @hidden element hidden from any and all user initiated viewing scenarios may achieve this by simply not referencing the element.
