No, sadly, it is really due to dogma: your above explanation would make
perfect sense, but in practice, even after showing them our problem,
they still insist that it would be wrong for them to remove the chunks
of code that enforce the "scrollbar metaphor" by preventing the client
from getting the events that indicate that the user wants to move the
thumb's bottom further down than the scrollbar's own bottom.
