Transparency in visuals

Using the freeform setting to have visuals stacked on top of each other seems like a good idea, but there doesn’t appear to be any way to make the top visual have a transparent background. For example, lets say I have a bar chart and I want to add a KPI visual in the whitespace above the line – it would be great if the KPI could have a background of “transparent”.

Does this exist? If no, is it on the roadmap?
