I'm all for it myself.
I even had implemented it for 126.96.36.199 and had to revert because it was
making our tests fail.
The problem is that the doScroll technique can trigger the dom:loaded
event *after* window.onload, notably on short pages. Delegating to
window.onload in that case doesn't work, as it's not ordered in IE...
so that's the first thing to solve.
Not impossible, of course, so any implementation that passes our
current tests is more than welcomed.
