Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: I completely agree that "transparent" is suboptimal, but it's
unfortunately less misleading than "replaceable" (which clashes with CSS
terminology in an even more misleading way than "transparent") and
"substitutable" (which as far as I can tell is just incorrect).

I'm open to other terms, but so far "transparent" has been the least
problematic term suggested.
