The hidden section shows in the Navigator, and a click on the section, or  navigate by 'Section' will position to start of the hidden section. Isn't that enough?

I would say it is enough to find a hidden section, but not enough to prevent from unwanted delete. So I would narrow down this enhancement to a warning message, when you try to delete a hidden section. Comment would only help, if comments are displayed in your actual view.

Agree with Dieter to enhance the existing discoverability via Navigator by a confirmation box when a hidden section is to be deleted.

+1 For both the indicator and a warning when you delete a hidden section.

It is not enough for me because I would have to go a navigator and click section to find it. 

It would be great to just look at a "part" of a document and see that a section is hidden in that part.
