How important is aria-hidden, when already hidden with CSS?

I have content with CSS display:none; visibility:hidden. The WAI-ARIA spec says
add aria-hidden, to ensure support support for assistive technologies (AT)
that access the DOM directly.

For practical accessibility: which AT accesses the DOM directly?

For conformance: is the CSS alone enough to meet WCAG success criteria?
