This seems so obvious to me that I find it difficult to explain further,
but maybe I misunderstood what you said.

Clearly you plan to develop some kind of DOM API giving the control of
scrolling you want, and let's assume that effort succeeds. If the working
group standardizes a CSS scroll-snapping API, would you simply refuse to
implement it forever, or would you wait to see if it gets adopted before
implementing, or would you happily implement it in addition to your DOM API?
