So an iframe that's scrolled out of view could return "hidden" if the 
browser wants?

Why is "full-size" in there?  If I have a background set to -moz-element 
for some element, but am scaling it down to half-size or whatnot, why 
should it not be considered "visible"?  Note that this is not the same 
as "preview"; the page is just being shown at some size that's clearly 
not a thumbnail but not "full-size".

Heck, if the user zooms the page is no longer shown "full-size"...
