The fact that `overflow: hidden;` on an ancestor makes this container become the new scrolling container for the sticky element, takes away the opportunity to clip the sticky container in any way.

I have a use case where the height of the sticky element and the height of its parent are unknown. I want the sticky element to be sticky on browser scroll. But I dont want the sticky element to overflow its parent. With the current spec this seems to be impossible. But I believe that this is a common use case.
