I think that people would very much prefer sacrificing this performance benefit over using hacks, workarounds, overflow, and whatnot to "prevent" the browser from scrolling or using `position:fixed` so that content can _appear_ like it's not scrolling.

Accelerated scrolling is a performance _benefit_ after all. If you use `beforescroll` wisely, it shouldn't be such a problem. Besides, `beforescroll` is useful for passive functionality as well, thanks to its delta properties and the fact that whatever you do with it won't lag behind.
