I find this behaviour very convenient when scrolling through the buffer,
because the bottom line before scrolling is always
next-screen-context-lines down the top after scrolling.  This makes it
very easy to continue reading, and it is consistent with the behaviour of
vi and less.

Good point. This is an advantage I haven't thought of. The Emacs behaviour makes perfect sense, other applications should adopt it instead of the other way around.
