Domel,

Though it may make sense to design a styling mechanism to control the
presentation of scrollbars, the MSIE scrollbar-*-color properties make too
many assumptions about a particular scrollbar appearance design.

The working group considered adding the scrollbar-*-color properties and
rejected them quite some time ago.

For CSS3 Basic UI, it is too late to add such a significant new feature.  It
could be considered for a future version.

Thanks for your comments,
