Some kind of onOverFlowChange event would be huge. When an element's "overflow" attribute is set to "auto", a scroll bar will appear or disappear automatically depending on whether the content has overflown or not. However, it is very hard for developers to figure out when the scroll bar appears and disappears.
Why Is This Important?
To be added
Add aon "onOverFlowChange" event that notifies developers of the "overflow" status change.

Brad Neuberg's comments
BTW, if we want to use iframes more as a containment mechanism, mentioned in one of the proposals, then solving this is important. If you have a bunch of iframed 'widgets' on your page, you can get annoying vertical and horizontal scroll bars all the time as overflow changes.
