I don't agree this proposal amounts to a "convenient shorthand". We 
need this property to have a rational layered platform.

There are two completely distinct underlying primitives, hiding the 
scrollbar UI and disabling user panning.  "overflow: hidden" 
opinionatedly conflates them. As I said, the only two ways to achieve 
this otherwiseareis A) 
small-clip-box-containing-larger-scroll-viewport madness, or B) 
reinvent touch gesture handlers in JS.  That's a sign this is not 
simply a "convenience".
