Chromium team was recently asked for this feature in the form of enabling
scrolling cross-domain iframed content into view.

See the whatwg thread starting here:

My summary of that thread: Gecko added support for XPointer on XML documents in
2003 and removed it due to lack of adoption from web developers. It's unclear
why web developers didn't use XPointer in Firefox, but it's at least partially
because it was never implemented for HTML/XHTML pages. XPointer is XPath based,
but it's conceivable that once we have XPath support, we could reasonably add
other schemes like "css" if we wanted selector-based matching.

There was some concern that this somehow increases the ability to do
clickjacking, but I really don't buy the argument that this makes clickjacking
attacks more effective.
