We went back and forth on this a while ago - we came to the conclusion that with the way assistive technologies (ATs) work today, it makes the most sense not to expose this content to ATs until it is visible on the page. This does mean that an AT-specific find in page feature will not be able to use the hidden-matchable functionality, unfortunately, but the alternative (exposing that content to AT, even with a "hidden" flag set) would mean that AT users would not benefit from the intended performance benefits of the feature, which are even more acute when using AT.
