If they wanted to access them, I'd expect them to use a user agent
with a mechanism for exposing them.

The challenge of universal access to hidden descriptions is not
specific to descriptions that have structure or interactivity. Yet
ARIA blesses hidden descriptions and accordingly so do both CPs.

How far this is a significant practical problem is unclear.
