Since Kendo UI Mobile uses anchors for navigation, the described approach will not work, indeed. There is one other issue - Kendo UI Mobile does not use native scrolling, so anchors would not work even without the history support.
The thing that makes sense (and is logged for implementation) would be to expose scrollTo method for the mobile scroller, which will allow you to scroll to the given area - we will probably include this in the upcoming service pack.
All the best,
the Telerik team
