You could just work in the explanation I sent in
   http://www.w3.org/mid/4FC64100.3060800@inkedblade.net
e.g.
   | Each element in the top layer's stack has a ::backdrop pseudo-element,
   | which can be styled to create a backdrop that hides the underlying
   | document when the element is displayed fullscreen.

I think that would address Daniel's comment.

The CSSWG generally tries to explain the intention of a feature at a high
level rather than simply giving the processing model and asking implementers
to blindly implement it. This helps spec reviewers understand the goal of
the feature and therefore comment intelligently on how it fulfills that
goal, and it helps implementers and authors create a mental context for
interpreting the rest of the spec text and applying it to real code.
