What if element has contenteditable=true attribute but it's hidden. E.g.:

<div style="display:none">
  <div contenteditable="true">Am I editable?</div>
</div>

AFAIK Blink and Webkit sets isContentEditable to false on such attributes and
in my opinion it makes sense - especially for editing hosts. Firefox and IE
leaves isContentEditable true and therefore it would be good if this case was
explained in specification.
