OK. I'm fine with either name. Anyone else have opinions about the name?  
If not I'll change to scrollingElement.

* overflow/background use body->viewport if html has the initial values.  
Using either root or body works in any mode.

* direction/writing-mode uses body->viewport (mostly, in implementations,  
but this is an open issue). Since they inherit, using either root or body  
works in any mode.
