Yep, I will look for other existing designs and try to share some
inspiring links to discuss here with the list.

I am confident that it is possible to override the Masthead z-index
property so that it will display underneath and not above the Annotator
box. I am not a CSS expert myself, but I have added a ticket for this in
the project issues.

Not sure that this would avoid positioning glitches though.
I do not know this part of the Annotator either, but my impression is
that the current implementation is quite solid. Perhaps another solution
defined CSS z-index rules, and decrement those that are higher than the
Annotator widget's z-index.
Again, not sure, perhaps it is the case of consulting a CSS guru...
