As designed, what we call "cantSelect" works like "alwaysBrowse", and 
both as documented as in practice it seems to do exactly that, which 
prevents drag-selecting across any object that has cantSelect set to 
true in order to attempt to select other objects which may be on top of it.

Is there some combination of properties that turn the alwaysBrowse 
behavior into a true cantSelect?

It would be very desirable to have such a thing, since we could then 
make things like a page-size graphic as a background for a drawing 
region, and drag-select across it.
