Shouldn't be it instead in the same pseudo-stacking-context of
non-positioned non-floated *content*?

I expect that the same reasons for non atomical drawing of backgrounds
and borders require the scrolling mechanism (when one is needed, ie
only for overflow-style: scrollbar or pager) to be always with
content: if content is available, scrollbars should be.
