Thanks for reviewing the patch.

All good points. I'll see what I can do.

Regarding the geometry keyframe: I think it might make sense to keep the keyframe functionality exposed. The transition will extrapolate the position and transparency values between keyframes. That allows you to make special effects to the overlay such as:
* Make the overlay fade in for a few seconds and then fade out
* Make the overlay move around the screen.

I'll upload an new patch to the bug tracker after I think I have resolved your comments.
