One very-specific suggestion: I’d like for it to be less intrusive in the
case where somebody is viewing a document in dark mode (e.g., by using a
tool like Dark Reader https://darkreader.org/) — because when I try that
myself, the watermark really ends up getting in the way of readability.

That said, I don’t know what’s possible currently to do with CSS as far as
trying to anticipate what’ll happen when dark mode mechanisms try to adjust
the color of a watermark background like that.
