It is not an option to make Emacs unusable on large files for the sake
of the scrollbar idiosyncrasies of some toolkit.

In practice, if the file is large, scrollbar operations are less accurate and less smooth anyway, so you can get away with rough estimations very well without further compromising the scroll quality.

However the smaller the file the better a scrollbar can work and that is why accurate size calculations are especially beneficial for small files rsp. well choosen small parts of a file, such as at the top and the bottom.
