I have sympathy for this use case - if you're using the grid for spacing content it's annoying that it's not symmetrical (top and left offsets add to the scrollable area, but right and bottom offsets do not). Adding empty divs to 'contentize' the abstract grid lines is really clunky. 

When we get to the point of being able to style grid areas/gaps in CSS that may or may not have content in them, perhaps the areas with boxes from content OR boxes from styling should be considered in the scrollable area? This at least would be a CSS-only fix.
