That's a result of CSS layout/rendering; it doesn't seem
super-appropriate to add to the DOM.  It's also a bit troublesome; an
element can be partially hidden, so when does this flag flip to true?
It's also very specific; there are a ton of ways that an element can
get hidden besides being clipped by an overflow:hidden ancestor.
What's the actual use-case you're trying to address here?
