Having seen the numerous issues with using "fixed" toolbars I just wanted to come up with a "sort of" workaround. This isn't a solution but hopefully someone else might improve on it and make it more of a "solution"
it involves using CSS overflow mousemove events setinterval and jqlite
using the tools I was able to make a div scroll using the position of the mouse using "mousemove" eventlisteners and using setInterval to loop a $(element).css('top'osition) inside an overflow:hidden div untill the content reaches its end points in the overflow.
unfortunately this works with the config.xml user focus navigation unchecked and for trackball/trackpad devices. The scrolling isn't that terrifc either.
I'm hoping though that it brings an idea to more seasoned developers in coming up with a definitive solution.

I have made similar solution using translateY, it works fine, but there is a problem: when the app returns from background state it takes 1-3 seconds for UI start responding to requests. Obviously it's only a partial solution.
