We've definitely discussed this, but ended up not using it due to WebKit people objecting to it; while they default to "none" behavior with overlay scrollbars, they allow switching it off, and don't want to allow authors to force pages back to overlay against user's wishes.  (Florian said essentially this, I'm just making it clearer that this isn't a theoretical; it is based on @smfr and @hober objecting during meetings in the past.)

Having "none" mean that, for such users, they get obscured content (and in a code path that's unlikely to be tested) doesn't sound great. :(
