I will like to request if Richfaces could come out with a new control: a scrollable panel. This is because of a certain problem I've faced which I think others might come across during development.
I'm having to render rich:resursiveTreeAdaptor within a rich:panel as a sidebar in my application. Unfortunately some of the nodes have very long names, and therefore they extend beyond the borders of the sidebar into the main body and i bet you it doesn't look nice.
I think having a scrollable panel just like the rich:scrollableDataTable will solve this type of problem easily and will be useful in a log of other situations.
Add it to JIRA
