If the root is not the ICB, the ICB is not selectable by CSS, and thus 
overflow for instance cannot be styled.

I think treating the root as ICB is the most sane behavior.

Ofcourse it is already inconsistent since in paged mode, you select the ICB 
using the "@page" context/selector. 

If we insist on copying Mozillas accidental behavior, we need another way to 
style the viewport consistently like with a "@viewport" context.
