The following answers have been successfully submitted to 'ISSUE-95:
Removing the hidden Attribute - Straw Poll for Objections' (HTML Working
Group) for Krzysztof Maczy&#324;ski.



---------------------------------
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: 





---------------------------------
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: 
The other CP lists enough problems with this attribute. Besides, the case
for boolean attributes is questionable (changing requires altering presence
of a node, not just its value, which is inconvinient in some scenarios).
While it may well be useful, even more broadly than in HTML, at this time
it should be removed from the draft, possibly to come back more fully baked
later. (There's little to lose anyway, given ARIA's close equivalent.
Careful attention has to be paid to aspects in which there's no
equivalence, however.)
