The sticky content does not accumulate within the viewport, but instead gets pushed off-screen when other sticky content scrolls up to meet it. If you are not familiar with this iPhone convention, then first take a look at this jQuery-based demo I found on the Web:

Just saw this in Webkit. Yeah, that is the idea. If you make the background on the letter headers (H1's) translucent (and the background on the LI's white), then it would be more like the real thing, and you can see the address entries as they pass under the headers. But the motion effect of the scrolling is correct.
