Right now there isn't any specification for retrieving or modifying the 
scroll position of a scrollable area. There's a brief mention of the 
scroll* properties as part of the CSS object model draft [1] but I'm not 
sure if the css wg is the right place for that work, or whether this 
would better be part of the Web Applications spec either current or 
future. Regardless, I've written a proposal at [2] for how the scroll* 
properties could work as well as notes about how existing browsers 
handle them. Thoughts?
