Just to revisit this years later, I'm happy to report that this Web fad is gone and that stupid effect is no longer used.

I can see the use in limited cases as in your example. Otherwise it's just a gimmick. I just got really curious as I started seeing this on more and more websites lately and I think there is some kind of trend building up. Hopefully it will die off just as quickly. As a friendly side-note I find your technical implementation of it sub-optimal, it's quite slow because you use a repeated 2x2 background and it puts a lot of strain on the browser to render. I would increase the overlay size considerably and you will notice a huge improvement in page scroll response.
