vertical-motion needs the buffer displayed in some window, but it does
not need the text it traversed to be visible in that window.  Thus, it
has fewer limitations that posn-at-point and pos-visible-in-window-p,
which are called by line-move-visual.

It simulates display, i.e. runs the same code as would be used to lay
out the text in question, but without actually displaying it.

It should be possible, in principle, to write something similar to
posn-at-point that would not depend on the text being visible, or
rewrite posn-at-point to free it from this limitation, but we don't
have such a function at this time.  Maybe we should.
