I think 'hidden' and 'none' were meant to be the same thing.

In SMIL it is called 'hidden', so that is probably what it should be
here as well.

However, there is a subtle difference between SMIL and CSS: in SMIL,
'hidden' not only means that the image is not scaled, but also that
any overflowing part is clipped. In CSS, whether to clip is controled
by the 'overflow' property.
