Ok, sorry, I was pissed off... The web platform triggers this sort of reactions sometimes :-)

Constructive proposal:
* a special value for the hidden attribute that forces the element to be hidden regardless of what the CSS or style attribute says for the display value.
Maybe `hidden="force"`?

This might break existing website which would use the "force" value, but since it had no special meaning currently and there is no good reason to use this value, I'd say the odds are very low.

Any implementor interested?

// CSS:
  display: flex;

// HTML:
<div hidden></div>

Per spec, the div should be shown right? I imagine there is no way back on that? Does it mean hidden only works when the default (UA stylesheet) display value is kept? Does it mean hidden is completely useless when trying to combine it with display:flex?

What I'm trying to do is just that an element have display:flex and to hide it with the hidden attribute when I don't need the element to be shown. I guess my only option is changing style.display?
