My investigation showed that current implementation applies alpha mask to the content(original object) before reflecting it. Descriptions and examples of -webkit-box-reflect usage I've found at webkit.org/blog and developer.apple.com say that mask isn't applied to the content but to the reflection. This is important for page author to know if the mask will be mirrored together with the content or not.

The behavior of this property is unlikely to change.
