The show() and hide() methods from the Widgets A&E specification has a lot of potential to be abused, and annoying.  In this sense, it should really be hidden behind a <feature> definitions, so a User Agent can optionally allow or disallow the feature.

With that in mind, I would propose dropping these two methods from A&E, and leave them to later be specified as an extension.
