@tantek I'm quite confident that @andyearnshaw is requesting ability to style controls, specifically the placement of controls, which is much more to do with the css-scrollbars spec.

I think the "non-scrollable areas" mentioned are just areas where fixed or sticky positioned elements always remain in view of the scrollport.
