I'd like to propose to add another condition:
  7. it is visible (computed 'display' property of CSS isn't 'none' and no
'hidden' content attribute)

I couldn't find exceptional rules for validating invisible controls in the
current draft.
Chrome 5 was released with a part of interactive validation, and we received
a bug report about validation against invisible form controls.
