Other comments:

There is one issue relating to a11y that is worth drawing attention to: https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/6351 
There, it was requested that the CSS-WG considers expanding the scrollbar-width property to enable authors to request wide scrollbars, among other things for accessibility reasons. The CSS-WG considered that case, and concluded that while wide scrollbars was a legitimate things for **users** to want, it did not follow that control over this aspect should be given to **authors**. User controls and preferences over UI should be available, but that is a matter of browser settings, not of CSS. Further thoughts are documented in the issue and the minutes attached.
