animate to the closest snap point, which is behind the scroll offset,
causing it to “bounce back” from the end. Is this even a problem, or is
this effect something authors might actually want?

One way to prevent this would be to add “implicit” snap points at the
ends of the container, so all content in the container can be reached by
