Yes, there would be a discrete jump at some point when you grew/ 
shrank, as opposed to a scrollbar just coming in at the smallest  
possible value.  It could also mess with JS-created scrollbars trying  
to key off scrollWidth/scrollHeight.  It probably isn't possible to do  
this well, but I thought I'd suggest it as another possible solution.

On another note, WebKit also supports box-reflect, a CSS property for  
doing reflections of objects.  I am wondering whether reflections  
should be considered layout overflow or purely visual overflow.   
Unlike shadows they can be quite large.  I'm on the fence about what  
type of overflow a reflection would be.... anyone have any opinions?
