Without further context, I'm fine with the idea. It does mean you have to run full layout outside of the viewport, which is something we're trying to allow skipping in some circumstances (a sufficiently `contain`'d element, for example).

Can you explain how this helps the cited use-case, tho? I don't quite understand how eFP() working outside the viewport would help them determine whether an element is visible.
