What would content:transparent do?  In HTML "transparent" is just a
term for the semantics of some elements.

(We've also discussed a display:transparent that would be thematically
similar to HTML's notion of "transparent" - the element wouldn't
generate a box in the box tree (similar to display:none), but its
children still would.)
