Thanks for the detailed use cases.

For the case where `overflow: hidden` is only used to trim the corners of an image, my first instinct is whether there could be another way to do this — a new clip-path value that references the parent's border box, maybe?  That way, you're not hiding overflow unless you really want to hide content.

But that doesn't help with the case where you want to extend outside of a scrolling container, but still be positioned relative to an element inside that scroller.
