The element hiding helper should show the number of elements that will be hidden as the result of the new rule.

For example, I am on a website which contains a banner has a fully random url and can only be hidden by[height="120"]
To know if this filter doesn't cause any false-positives I have to check the full page if anything else does also disappear after adding that rule, which can be a lot of work on multi-column multi-section (news) websites. Or I have to assume it is correct and hope I'm not wrong.
However, it would be nice if there was a line in the EHH 'This filter hides # items on this page'.

What to change

The EHH should show a text (probably only on advanced mode), telling how many elements would be hidden on the page. This number can be obtained by calling (for example)
on the frames of the website that match the domain.
