The definition of the 'fit' property is somewhat inconsistent about
whether one of its values is called 'none' or 'hidden'.  The values
list says it's 'hidden', but then there's an issue noting whether it
should be called 'none' or 'hidden', and the example image shows the
value as 'none'.  These should be consistent.

I would strongly prefer 'none', since the property is describing
scaling.  (It may be that some of the values cause hiding, depending
on the response to [2].  However, 'hidden' is not the only such
value.  'slice' would also cause hiding.)
