For example, you display a paragraph of text in a menu and include the
pages of the Invariant section in compliance with the license.  Fine.
But then you make the font of the Invariant section invisible.  You
included it anyway, so are you okay?  No, because you used a mechanism
to effectively get around (circumvent) the license requirements.

Even if it were allowed, forcing that on developers makes it non-free.
