Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-background-4] Switch to opt into transparent canvas for additive displays (#3949)

That's not an additive device since it can blend the web content with the real world using `source-over`. 
For instance, this means that black text can still be visible.

I don't follow. Can you list the scenario you're thinking of?
