Overall I like it, I only have a few small nitpicks:

  - I don't think that the API being called "getBoundingClientRect"  
entails that the matching prose term needs be "bounding client rect".  
I'm pretty sure you can go with "bounding client rectangle" and people  
will understand.
  - I reckon "pseudo-stacking-context" should be an entry in the  
terminology section. My understanding is that the behaviour you want  
is the one in CSS 3 Color (http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-color/ 
#transparency). Given that that's a WD, the simplest might be to just  
copy the text over.
  - The language needs to be a little bit more spec-like, notably  
regarding conformance criteria.

But you might not want to worry about any of the above as none of it  
changes the actual functionality that you're describing. It's the sort  
of change that an editor could very quickly make if there's consensus  
on the content.
