Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-values] Should viewport units still depend on scrollbar width for overflow:scroll?

It's literally the only way to get accurate viewport units in the presence of a root scroller.  Use of vw is relatively rare in the first place, and most of the time people don't need precise values, but I suspect there's a subset of authors who are annoyed at 100vw not being the width of the layout area in some browsers.
