Mockup of the suggested feature
There should be an option to toggle the «Show All Entries» in the Panels submenu in Dolphin.
This will make it more discoverable, and be easier to find and unhide items which were accidentally hidden.
Attached an image of what I'm envisioning.
That does sound like a good idea, especially for our Usability Initiative.
Okay, this went rather fast! :)

Improve Ux for the places panel's hidden items
Clean up the context menu for the places panel.
- Change Text "Show All Entries" -> "Show Hidden Places"
- Use State dependent icon (like hidden files)
- Disable instead of hide if not places are hidden.
- Toggle to unchecked if last item of group is unhidden.
Create a copy of this "Show Hidden Places" entry in the main dolphin menu View->Places.
With Hidden Places
Without Hidden Places.
