I had this same thought. The mouse pointer does interfere with reading
the text when it hovers over it.

Sometimes it's even worse: the mouse hovering in an area may even cause
tooltips to pop up and obscure the content of the window! This just
happened to me as I was reading the Boost.Thread docs on www.boost.org
- wherever the mouse rests, even in plain paragraph text, the section
title pops up as a tooltip!
