I think what you mean is 'cookie cutter' text that creates holes in its
own background. But in any case, no.

The effect could be had if 'url()' were a valid color spec. Simply spec
text with the same url as the background behind the element.

Unfortunately, there's a problem with url as used with the 'background'
element. Attributes for a url should be part of the url, not the
background. Even if the spec allowed url() as color, you would have no
control over its position.
