Yes. I've been meaning to update the region-fragment example to include
some content that overflows in the inline direction, to show how the
overflow property applies to all regions no matter what region-fragment is
set to. And content can overflow in the block direction in some
circumstances as well. So any region in a region chain could have
scrollbars in both directions.

Thanks,
