I got the impression that scrollbars is even further away from the

simply incompatible.

How is it incompatible? There were many positive suggestions in that
old thread.

Certainly the impression I got from the old discussions was that it
wasn't so much that it was _difficult_ to support the Emacs model, but
rather that they wanted to _prevent_ apps from using such a model
because they thought it was bad (for the user?).

I think they want applications to behave the same, and the Emacs model is late to the game (for Gtk+). So there is little reason to switch.
