Great! It's an increasingly common pattern that could use some help from
the engine.

Cool. I agree with the general principle, but I want to ensure Web
authors don't have to roll their own scrolling engine with transforms
and rAF just to do interesting things like non-janky infinite scrolling.
I think this will require some additions to the platform, but hopefully
we can keep the Web-exposed changes minimal.

I'm in the middle of writing up an email for www-style with our thought
process and what we've looked at; stay tuned.
