Normally, an absolutely positioned box of unknown height would extend the viewport by its bounding box only (it glues at the bottom of the window). The proposed "a.p. box glue solvent" establishes space beyond the box. The html element expands to contain this descendant of the a.p. box, therefore, it is possible to scroll beyond the box.
