The CSS Working Group just discussed `scroll-index`.

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;emilio> topic: scroll-index<br>
&lt;emilio> github: https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/5670<br>
&lt;emilio> florian: not my issue but I wanted to give it some attention<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> q+<br>
&lt;emilio> ... The use case is something we see on lots of websites, with a top banner that disappears but reappears if you scroll up again<br>
&lt;emilio> ... This author is thinking of this in terms of nested scrollers<br>
&lt;emilio> ... where your top banner is in a scroller outside the inner one<br>
&lt;emilio> ... we always prioritize the inner scroller<br>
&lt;flackr> q+<br>
&lt;emilio> ... but the author was proposing to prioritize the outer scroller, and only when that is exhausted scroll the inner one<br>
&lt;emilio> ... no strong opinion, there could be some parallels with overscroll-behavior<br>
&lt;emilio> ... just wanted to bring some attention to the issue<br>
&lt;emilio> TabAtkins: I find the use case good to address because lots of sites do this badly<br>
&lt;emilio> ... but I think this approach is not the way to go<br>
&lt;Rossen_> ack TabAtkins<br>
&lt;emilio> ... first this doesn't do what lots of sites do which is having a minified banner<br>
&lt;emilio> ... second, it seems very easy to screw up a page if you only test on desktop<br>
&lt;emilio> ... the current behavior is safer for that<br>
&lt;emilio> ... So I think the problem is good, the solution is bad<br>
&lt;emilio> ... we probably want another way to do this<br>
&lt;Rossen_> ack flackr<br>
&lt;emilio> flackr: I was going to point pretty much the same<br>
&lt;emilio> ... you only want to do this scroll priority inversion for the topmost scroller<br>
&lt;emilio> ... if you have nested ones then scrolling the header is probably not what the user intended<br>
&lt;Rossen_> q?<br>
&lt;emilio> ... so it seems a bit of a problematic solution<br>
&lt;emilio> Rossen_: sounds like the use case is well recognized, but the proposed solution is not<br>
&lt;argyle> agree with robert and tab<br>
&lt;emilio> ... I suggest to go back to the issue to discuss the solution<br>
&lt;emilio> florian: so the issue was proposing the solution, you're proposing to repurpose it right?<br>
&lt;emilio> Rossen_: sure<br>
&lt;emilio> florian: sounds good<br>
&lt;emilio> Rossen_: yeah, it seems like we should explore a good solution for this problem<br>
