But that would make it very awkward for the user to insert text
immediately after the invisible area.

If we still want to provide the illusion that the text really isn't
there at all, then we should treat either the buffer position
immediately before or immediately after as part of the intangible text,
depending on the direction of the motion (so that both positions
can still be reached "easily").
