Yes, we really want to be able to clip image content to the curve of
the border-radius. As for scrollbars, I've added this to the spec:

   # The UA may reduce or treat as zero the border-radius for a
   # given corner if a scrolling mechanism is present in that corner.

So I expect that in a UA whose scrollbars require a sharp corner,
when the scrollbars are present the border-radius is reduced such
that the padding edge's radius is zero. Drawing the curved corner
over or under the scrollbars would look ridiculous, imo.
