Not sure what you mean by 'THE option'. I was in fact surprised when I 
found that only iCab, but neither Opera nor the Firefox extension, uses 
a hover style to indicate its presence - as it is a unobtrusive form of 
indication but still a form of indication. Some indication is many 
times better than no indication.

As for other HTML features, it would make it less hidden if it has a 
agreed upon base styling. E.g. HTML5's rendering section should 
definitely suggest how to render it. We are then speaking about GUI UAs.
