'overflow' effectively never applies to the root element since when it's
set on the root element, it applies to the viewport instead.  This is
clarified in changes we've made since the last public draft, so the rule
that overflow on the root should be propagated to the viewport is no
longer specific to HTML UAs, and is now a must instead of a should.
