Uhm, who said document.elementsFromPoint() would take document coordinates?
Did you mean <element>.caretPositionFromPoint()? If so, how to solve the
overlapping problem then?

Btw. what is caretPositionFromPoint() expected to return? A character
offset?

I think elementsFromPoint isn't a great name

How about getElementsAtPoint() and getCaretPositionAtPoint() to be
consistent with similar functions?
