== [css-values] Should viewport units still depend on scrollbar width for overflow:scroll? ==
Right now the [definition of viewport units](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-values-3/#viewport-relative-lengths) says that they shrink for scrollbar sizes when `overflow` on the root is `scroll` (which is quite rare, since it's not the default), but not in other cases.

Apparently Gecko is the only engine that implements this, and we're wondering whether it's worth the work to maintain that implementation when it seems like nobody else is going to.

Are other engines planning to do this?
