The following answers have been successfully submitted to 'ISSUE-95:
Removing the hidden Attribute - Straw Poll for Objections' (HTML Working
Group) for Gregory Rosmaita.



---------------------------------
Objections to the Change Proposal to Remove the hidden Attribute
----
We have a Change Proposal to remove the hidden attribute. If you have
strong objections to adopting this Change Proposal, please state your
objections below.  Keep in mind, you must actually state an objection, not
merely cite someone else. If you feel that your objection has already been
adequately addressed by someone else, then it is not necessary to repeat
it.
Objections: 
a native solution which provides the means of marking content as not yet
or no longer relevant, is highly desireable; while such a feature, of
course, needs to be harmonized with what ARIA offers, it MUST be remembered
that aria-hidden is part of a bridging vocabulary, which provides semantics
and functionalities which native markup does not provide; the hiding and
exposition of content that is not yet, or is no longer, relevant should not
be left to scripting or an overlay such as ARIA, but should be an organic
part of HTML5. 

that said, i agree with julian reschke that in order for the hidden
attribute to work as intended, it is first necessary to define precedence
rules for the application of hidden.




---------------------------------
Objections to the Change Proposal to Keep New Elements and Attributes
----
We have a Change Proposal to keep several newly-introduced semantic
elements, attributes, and controls. If you have strong objections to
adopting this Change Proposal specifically with respect to the hidden
attribute, please state your objections below.  Keep in mind, you must
actually state an objection, not merely cite someone else. If you feel that
your objection has already been adequately addressed by someone else, then
it is not necessary to repeat it.
Objections:
