           Summary: clarify why a command element that is not in a menu is
                    conforming
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: faulkner.steve@gmail.com
         QAContact: public-html-bugzilla@w3.org

                    public-html@w3.org


in the spec is states:
"command elements are not rendered unless they form part of a menu."

it also states

"The Hidden State of the command is true (hidden) if the element has a hidden
attribute, and false otherwise."
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/commands.html#using-the-command-element-to-define-a-command

So shouldn't command elements that are not part of a menu always have a hidden
state?

Also please clarify in the spec what the purpose of a command element that is
not part of a menu and thus never rendered is
