I guess you want something like ‘pointer-events: none’. In the browsers 
where this is supported on HTML elements, it just does what you want.

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!
