Note in particular that "consensus" is *among CSSWG members*, not web authors.

Author feedback is a *very important* part of our process (and some members *exclusively* represent author interests), but ultimately there's a **lot** of authors in the world, with diverse needs and opinions, and so we're guaranteed that any decision we make will be very unpopular with some fraction of them.

Scrollbar-related topics took up a substantial amount of time at one of our face-to-face meetings this year, and the fact that some websites were currently using more than two colors for their custom scrollbars was definitely brought up. Ultimately, tho, we had to balance between the competing desires of browsers that allowed *zero* scrollbar customization (such as Safari) and those that allowed *total* scrollbar customization; we determined that the 2-color approach would satisfy most users while still being acceptably simple to the less-customization browsers.
