Why don't you just add a property to `body` or `html` that tells the browser that it's ok to render stuff that's normally cut off because it's outside the viewport?

```
render-safe-area: allow;
```

And then the UA can just fill up the space as needed with stuff that's normally cut off? This way the developer could just place elements outside the normally available viewport, e.g. render a header element that should extend to the edges of the screen with negative margins.
