@hidden public seems more confusing to me, because the symbol is not public to name lookup. @abiPublic has no effect on source compatibility, only binary compatibility.

I can revise the proposal to add a brief mention of ‘open’ if you’d like. As you may have guessed already there is no distinction between ‘open’ and ‘public’ here.
