| XBL, as I understand it, is designed to allow complex styling and
| scripting of elements, including interactive ones like ones with
| scrollbars or dropdown <select>s.
| 
| As far as I know (though I really only understand why it exists, not
| specifics) authors should certainly be able to style scrollbars with it,
| or even create their own.

Sorry, but I beleive that your understanding of XBL in respect of styling 
of non-DOM elements is just wrong.

AFAIK, XBL allows to style sub-trees of the DOM separately but this 
aria is from another opera.
