Fixed menus only work if the menu is short. If it is reasonably long 
then the bottom of the menu can become inaccessible on a screen too 
small to show the full menu.

I would therefore be -1 on such a solution being the default behaviour.

I'd suggest that this would be best placed in a FAQ entry (we would use 
extra-css in skinconf to add the necessary CSS settings.
