The problem with absolutes is that they inevitably run into exceptions. :)

Can you imagine a text editor that limited you to one screen's worth of 
data?

Or a page layout program that only supported page sizes that happen the 
match the monitor you're currently using?

Or an Automator that only allowed as many actions as your current screen 
can display?

And what to do about the busy professional who uses a 1600x1200 display 
at work, 1366x768 at home, and 1024x600 on her netbook when she's traveling?

And what do you do for the person who wants to open two documents side 
by side or above and below one another?

There are many good reasons why so many thousands of app provide 
scrolling....
