Probably you're still better off using display, since elements with
visibility: hidden can take up space:

head { display: block }
head > * { display: none }
head > link { display: table-cell }

Actually the adjacent table-cell elements should end up in the same row
in either case.  If you want each link in its own row, you would need
display: table-row on the link elements.  See [1].  (But how do these
rules interact with display: none on siblings between table-cells??)
