I suggest that the Guidelines (techniques) include notes that point out
that particular techniques will not be 'visible' to them, but will be
available to future browsers and/or assistive technology.

The future is now!  <smile> Via Dynamic HTML and Microsoft Active
Accessibility, even non-visible tags and attributes get exposed.  Existing
screen readers use this information to adjust their rendering of the
information to the user.
