Okay, let's take the perspective from a user:
Persona #1: Has always used apple devices, no external devices, and uses Safari as its browser of choice.
Persona #2: Windows user, uses a mouse, uses Chrome and / or Internet Explorer, not knowing the difference.

What would the experience for both users be when they use your site vs any other website or scrolling application on their platform?

The current setup lets persona #1 have the same scroll (touchscreen and touchpad) experience regardless of device, application or website. While persona #2 has the same experience with his mouse in either browser.

This all starts to fall apart when you modify scroll behaviour for your website or application. It goes directly against [Apple](https://developer.apple.com/design/human-interface-guidelines/macos/windows-and-views/scroll-views/) (and any other platform for that matter) UX guidelines.
