I think it might not be possible to test this with WPT. The limitation that we have is that I can't spin up a tab, then switch back to the original test's tab, which would cause the background tab to be "hidden". 

Similarly, with an iframe: removing the iframe makes it "hidden", but it simultaneously trashes the iframe's `window` object, hence you can't call geolocation on it (unless you steal a reference to geolocation before it is GC'ed, but at that point you are dealing with dead objects).
