        Of the packages I use, ERC and Gnus make use of ‘intangible’ by
        default.  Specifically, the default for erc-timestamp-intangible
        is ‘t’, and for gnus-hidden-properties it’s ‘invisible t
        intangible t’ – which, per (elisp.info) Special Properties,
        is also unnecessary:

    […] A common misuse is to put an intangible property on invisible
    text, which is actually unnecessary since the command loop will move
    point outside of the invisible text at the end of each command
    anyway.  […]

        Gnus, however, appears to use overlays extensively for
        highlighting, while overlays, in turn, seem to be completely
        ignored by enriched.el, thus making enriched-encode unlikely to
        cause issues when called over Gnus buffers.

        It seems that the property is also used by RefTeX and SES, but I
        haven’t found any use to either yet.
