Hi.

I believe we could think about adding a new display value, the *virtual*
 display.
An element with *display: virtual;* would follow the absolute positioned
elements behavior, but would not trigger any interaction with the user.

I mean, mouseover, out, click, etc...
This way, developers would be able to create an element(let's say, covering
the whole page, with a color-to-transparent gradient background) in front
of the entire page, but the user would be able to click and interact with
all the page elements, as if this element was not there.
It would offer to developers, the chance to create "glass reflection"
effects over html elements, or even effects of shadow or dust, not
interfering with the page functionality and events, what is something
totally new in an interface. Games would use it a lot, or pages for
portfolios and hotsites.

Let me know what you think about it!

Cheers.
