Labels are currently shown for features that are hidden behind other features.

e.g. see the screenshot at [https://trac.osgeo.org/qgis/ticket/3253], where a white polygon has been used specifically to mask other layers.

It would be good if the labelling engine could detect that a feature is invisible, and not label it. Maybe this should be optional.

I guess this might be very difficult to achieve... and if a good solution was implemented for #3253 I think the benefits of this labeling enhancement would be minimal. But I figure it is worth recording the idea anyway.
