Yes, 'scroll-padding' is designed for *precisely* this use-case.  Set
the size of the fixed header as a scroll-padding on the scroll
container, and pgUp/pgDn should jump the appropriate amount. (If
browsers properly support it, of course.)

Don't worry about correct tagging, we can edit titles and add labels
later.  Putting stuff into GitHub is *greatly* preferred; it's easy to
lose track of emails, particularly since our workflow is so GH-focused
now.
