Disable autoscroll for Ionic infinite scroll position="top"

Hi. Inifinite scroll as of now forces the scroll to bottom, when position=“top” is specified. I have not yet found a way to override this behaviour easily, hence I would like to ask if there are any plans on allowing developers to alter this behaviour or just disable such autoscroll.
Explanation of use-case: I am writing a chat application. I load 20 messages and show them messages (from the bottom). When I scroll to the top, however, the content gets autoscrolled to the bottom.
