> Specification doesn't mention if hidden elements are focusable or not.

Yes it does. It says "An element is focusable if the user agent's default
behavior allows it to be focusable or if the element is specially focusable,
*but only if the element is either being rendered*".

File a bug on Chrome. :-)

Because it has to be precise. Consider the text you wrote: what does it mean
for another element to be selected? Is that to do with text selection? Also,
your grammar is not correct English... many of the words you omit are actually
needed to be correct English. :-)
