If you're referring to IE's reported behavior, I would say that yes, it's
not gospel regarding platform conventions, and it may not even
intentionally deviate.

I verified James' testing and am sufficiently convinced that the Windows
convention, like other platforms, seems to be to not change focus due to
scrollbar clicks.  That makes me lean towards the "change Gecko and WebKit
to never focus" camp.
