> > I think the spec needs to be reworded to say that backface-visibility affects an element and some subset of its descendants, but I’m not sure how to define that subset. This should probably share wording with the (as yet unwritten) section on how 3d-transformed elements intersect with other non-transformed or 2d-transformed elements that share the same 3D rendering context.

I think I like Shawn's proposed text from a web author perspective.  Though as Simon mentioned the wording will probably need to be updated depending on how the wording of the 3d rendering context section ends up.  I'm also not sure if this would have any significant compat impact for the existing implementations?

Thanks,
