Which means that these features may severely constrain browser
optimizations in the future. And that means we have to consider whether
it's worth having the features as currently designed.

Maybe we could make progress if we introduced a CSS property that forces
its element to be a group and stacking context, *and* forces all its
children to be groups and stacking contexts, and then we say that
blending/compositing only works on those children, and that only the
siblings of a blended-composited element can be part of the background that
we blend/composite into.
