This was called [`box-suppress`](https://www.w3.org/TR/2015/WD-css-display-3-20151015/#box-suppress):

> The `display: none` value was historically used as a "toggle" to switch between showing and hiding an element. Making this reversible requires either setting up the CSS cascade carefully, or remembering what the `display` value was before it was set to `none`. To make this common use-case easier, this module introduces the separate `box-suppress` property to do the same thing, so that toggling whether or not an element appears in the formatting tree can now be done without affecting its display type when it *is* displayed.

But was deferred to level 4, [Changes Prior to CR Status](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-display-3/#changes-wd):

> Deferred the `box-suppress/display-or-not` property to the next level of Display, in order to provide time for further discussion of use cases.
