"Because the purpose of the XHTML rp element [RUBY] is to allow pre-existing user agents to parenthesize ruby text content, an XHTML user agent should use a styling rule for these elements that avoids rendering them such as rp {display: none}."

The rp element has to be correctly handled by XML markup also, not just XHTML, so there should be an rp value for display in section 3.1.

Whether the rp text is displayed or not is down to whether or not the user agent supports ruby - if it does, it should automatically hide rp elements by default.
