Is there any way to differentiate between a “Grey Colored Border” and a hidden 

A different line style could be used to represent hidden borders / Text 
boundaries like a Dotted line (-----), but in that scenario how a user will 
differential between a border whose line style has been set to dotted (-----) 
AND a hidden border?

In other words - is there any way to differentiate between a hidden border and 
a border whose line style/color has been set to “hidden border line 

It is a fundamental question, which applies to all borders - Table border, 
Page border, All Text Boundaries.

A solution which seems plausible is - (Many application like Word does so)
Use dotted line to represent hidden borders / text boundaries 
Make “hidden border line style/color” unavailable for formatting borders / 
Text boundaries.
