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.

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/xbl/xbl2.html is the work-in-progress
XBL2 draft.
