Is this appropriate? Were I to do this to a page, the user scrolls  
up, and then via javascript I retrieve the value of the style  
property, which value should be returned? I can do this and get an  
idea of the state of other elements, but here it would be useless.  
While your use case seems valid, this doesn't seem to me to be the  
correct approach. Not sure what should be though. Something XBLish?
