This would be my preference.  I still think we're going to need a new  
display type to go along with this feature, since I think elements  
that aren't intended for display at their declaration point would  
benefit from such a display type.  It would hide you at the  
declaration point, probably have shrink-to-fit behavior (without being  
constrained by containing block width), and probably also ignore clip/ 
opacity/etc. that might be in effect on ancestor elements.
