Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-display] Add a new property to replace `display: none` declaration (#4897)

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](
