ISSUE-95 (hidden): Remove/Discard the Hidden Attribute [HTML 5 spec]

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/95

Raised by: Shelley Powers
On product: HTML 5 spec

Remove section 7.1 which describes a hidden boolean attribute. 

The ability to hide or display elements is adequately covered with CSS, via
both the visible and the display properties. The aria-hidden attribute can more properly manage accessibility. The hidden attribute is completely redundant.
