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

> That would have been a huge mistake; one of the big uses of viewport units is piping page-size information into unexpected places, like font-size so your text gets bigger/smaller according to the viewport size. That can't be done with layout systems.

(That said, those use-cases don't need precise values; they're not bothered if 100vw isn't precisely the viewport width, they just care that it approximately maps to the viewport width.  And the layout use-cases are, generally, better solved by just using Flexbox/Grid. So, uh, it might be possible to convince me that making the viewport units lower-fidelity is acceptable.)
