The problem with keyboard users and hidden content, brought up by 
@thierryk, is actually a good argument for having an easy declarative 
way of hiding content.  Too many devs copy & paste the "screen reader 
only" CSS without actually thinking about whether it should be screen 
reader only (a label for an icon or a heading for a sidebar) or 
whether it should be hide-until-focused (like a skip-to-content link).

A semantic, declarative method of hiding content would make it easier 
for browsers to override the hiding when content receives focus, or 
based on user settings (such as when images are turned off).
