Comment (by afercia):

 From an accessibility point of view I'd recommend:

 - please don't introduce new non-link links (`href="#"`), we're going to
 remove them through all the admin screens, see #26504. This should really
 be a button, see for example the "Insert/edit link" modal
 - ideally, in the markup the button should be '''after''' the message,
 users need to know "what" they're going to dismiss before landing on a
 control that just says "hide", absolute positioning would be OK if done
 - the screen-reader-text "Hide" doesn't make much sens for blind people :)
 maybe something like "Dismiss this notice" would be more appropriate
 - minor: consider to make the clickable area bigger

 Will ask the accessibility team if an "alertdialog" ARIA role would be
 appropriate for these dismissable notices, will let you know. Thanks very
 much (really like the idea here!).
