What would be the intended result of depth sorting in this case? They 
both have 0 depth, no z-index and now the content order is undefined 
since AC is both before and after B.

I prefer having B transition to being between A and C while the Z 
translation is 0.

I'm not sure I understand this case fully. It makes sense to me that B 
would be in the middle, z-index applies within the current stacking 
context, putting B before Foreground.
