Or put another way, imagine an Aqua button with shadows on it near the  
bottom of a page.  Or imagine an iChat balloon done using border  
images (with overflow using that syntax, a similar concept to  
shadows).  Scrolling to the bottom should not "cut off" the shadow  
portion of those objects.

Please don't overreact to the horizontal scrollbar problem that exists  
with all kinds of overflow and assume you somehow have to special case  
shadow overflow.  This is not an issue that is unique to shadows.  It  
affects all kinds of visual overflow (and for many designs is  
trivially fixable by just putting overflow-x: hidden on the body).
