tantek has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-scrollbars][css-scrollbars-1] Can we simplify to two scroll-*-color properties? ==
Can we simplify from seven scroll-*-color properties to just two? (roughly equivalent to foreground/background, stroke/fill)

It appears that scrollbar-face-color and scrollbar-base-color are used either directly for or as input in determining the other colors if the other colors are not set.

We should experiment to see if we can satisfy most use-cases with just two scroll-*-color properties.

In addition, real world examples (see Bugzilla 77790) appear to typically use just two colors (but repeat them across the seven properties). Can we use those examples to help determine just which two properties we need for the 80/20?
