So should an <input type="text" style="display: none"> match :disabled, 
by that reasoning?

Note that I raised that exact question in 
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=410472

I probably even agree that <input type="hidden"> shouldn't match 
:enabled/:disabled, but I think the Selectors text as it stands doesn't 
really say what we want it to say...
