Hm - I am not satisfied with my own text there. Retry:

If an author would like to prevent all user-initiated viewing of 
hidden="" elements, a removal of the identifier (ID) or the hash-name 
reference would be necessary. But note that such a removal in some 
cases also has semantic side-effects for the element from which it is 
removed. For example if a @usemap attribute was removed, the 
<code>object</code> or <code>img</code> element from which it was 
removed, would change from interactive content to a normal graphic.
