Well, the Selectors spec is fixable. Daniel and I are actively
editing it now. However I don't think I agree that :enabled/:disabled
should not apply to type="hidden". The distinction does exist for
hidden controls as well, does it not?

An interesting question would be what happens if I write
   input[type="hidden"] { display: inline; }
Would I get nothing? A readonly input control? Something else?
