Are the viewport scrollbars the scrollbars corresponding to the root element?
Or are those a separate set of scrollbars?

What happens when absolutely positioned content is positioned outside the root
element border box?  Should it be scrollable to via the viewport scrollbars?
Should it be scrollable to via the root element's scrollbars?

In general, do absolutely positioned boxes count as part of a box's overflow
area?
