--- Comment #10 from John Meyer <johnpmeyer at gmail.com> ---
It seems to me that the original intent to not reflow while scrolling was a good idea. However, the divergence of height: 100% and height: 100vh breaks the principal of least astonishment at the very least. Rather than choose the largest or smallest icb, I believe users and developers would expect the viewport size to not change at all while scrolling. However, when the scrolling is complete, the viewport should be updated and the elements reflowed.

I realize that reflowing the document after the user has finished scrolling is challenging due to potential changes in scroll position, but maintaining the expected scroll position should be doable. This would allow developers to use 100vh and have it most closely resemble the spec while keeping the desired performance.
