If you look at the shadow picture, you can see the real problem with using a transmissive display in a reflective manner. Basically, each white pixel casts three colored subpixel shadows, which are not in alignment with the actual pixels. A red shadow bouncing up through a green subpixel is going to look pretty dark, even if the intended color is white. Reflective LCDs do not cast internal shadows. If the paper reflector was vertically closer to the subpixels, alignment would be better. Unfortunately, that would require taking apart the glass, which looks to be impossible.
