> This is a very elegant solution. But the one disadvantage would be that any given website would require significant changes if certain elements are to be detached. Detaching any element would require an audit of all its ancestors to ensure they are not flattened.

Yes, it requires changes, but those changes are necessary to make the whole model well-defined. I don't think there is any way to get around that sites need to spend a bit of time thinking through how they will show 3D.

> I am also not clear on all the properties that could cause flattening in a node. Are they the same as the criteria for stacking contexts?

All clips and visual effects cause flattening. The ED transform spec has a list of them.
