yeah, i've been down this road... it works, but the image can get 
pretty ugly pretty quickly... i've also used it for "masking" an 
image with boxes above it, so scrolling/resizing changes the 
image/text through the peephole...

what really helps, though, is setting the alt attribute on the img to 
be blank... otherwise i have a permanent 'Page BG' tooltip...

also, your link to the CSS3 section links to the CSS2 spec (noticed 
that by accident)...

so, did you try setting its z-index to 1, and setting everything 
above it to higher? perhaps the -100 is throwing moz...
