I use nulls - transparent objects with actions attached, floating on top of the buried items.
One thing I use this for is drop-down menus. When men menu drops, a null object drops over the burger button. Click on the null and the menu, along with the null object, retracts. This produces the effect of a toggle but without the scripting and booleans.
If (when) Hype reaches the point of supporting the creation of free-form vector objects, this null trick could be even more effective.
