Is that really reflowing, given that nothing actually moves? What it
certainly does require is :hover on arbitrary elements. As Eric Meyer
points out, the use of "display: none" means it doesn't degrade especially
well on a browser that supports CSS but not :hover on that particular
element. Perhaps it would be useful to have a :hoverable pseudoclass (and
indeed :activatable), although using that so that it will degrade well
with existing browsers would still be fiddly...
