This is now defined as well, including that only a single event is  
dispatched in this scenario:

   document.body.scrollTop = 500
   document.body.scrollTop = 0

I.e. when there is a sequence of scrollTop/scrollLeft/scroll() invocations.

What I changed is that the event is not cancelable (since it is not). Let  
me know if that is a problem.
