The reason I say you should not have an example is because
referring to a CSS3 property in a CSS2 specification creates
unnecessary dependencies between the two and should thus
generally be avoided.

If you need to specify somewhere that CSS3's 'opacity' creates
a stacking context, specify it in CSS3's 'opacity' description,
not here.
