Having a non-distracting foreground layer is a basic 2D cinematography technique. Those elements are there just as a subtle reminder that you have depth perception. In 3D, they're not there to call...

I'm not renting a pdf, so you'll have to elaborate on that close-to-face pixelation solution, and why it would work better than what's used in current VR headsets.

The sensation of actual VR (see: HTC Vive) is miles ahead of what you just described. It's probably useless to try to explain in detail; you'll just need to try it for yourself.

The simple truth is that nobody really knows how deep the VR well will go and when/if it will run dry.

But one thing's for sure: mobile phone VR doesn't hold a candle to HTC Vive.
