Agreed. This is something I tried to do when I set out to write the
zero-edit change proposal to keep hidden="", which then got folded into

Seems reasonable to me. I especially like the idea that CP authors
should identify general design principles which their CP's position
relies on, but that didn't make it into the design principles document
(Baby Steps comes to mind).
