Subject: Two questions about the 2.0 spec

1) On page 30 of 51, the HIDDEN input is defined.  The comment says "may be
used to transmit state information about client/server interaction."

Given that HTTP is a stateless protocol (erroneously, IMNVHO) I wonder what
sort of "state" is envisioned to be transmitted here.

2) Memory says that HTML+ used to have a "RENDER" element which told the
client to render a given element as another given element which the client
knew about.  Where did this RENDER element go and why was it removed?
