Note that we *have* that value; it's called `hidden`. It's not 
pannable, but you can scroll via script.  So we're not trying to 
explain anything fundamental here, we're trying to give a more 
convenient shorthand for some case that might be common enough to be 
worth simplifying - making something scrollable but not showing 
scrollbars (at least, on devices that make it easy to scroll via some 
direct gesture).
