Can anyone point me to research about hiding interface elements?

A project that I am involved in has raised an interesting debate about
reducing clutter in an interface.

Specifically, one side believes that it is ok to completely hide some
interface elements and only reveal them on rollover. I don't mean
disable or dim them in a normal state and then make them obviously
available on a rollover state, I mean make them magically appear out
of nowhere when the user mouses over a specific area.

Livelink "functions icon"

Hi all,

I was wondering how others feel about the "Opentext Livelink"
approach to showing actions. All of their actions are hidden under
row-specific "functions" menus.

(Search for "functions icon" livelink to see some examples)

What I think is interesting is that, while these menus are
contextual, they break the golden rule of context menus. These menus
contain everything.
