No visible scrollbar, but layout happens as if a scrollbar is present.

> Is this _regardless of overflow value_, or does it just apply to all the "scrollable" overflow values? (Hidden, auto, scroll) I assume an "overflow:visible" element remains unscrollable, as would the clip values?

overflow:visible and clip would remain unscrollable, yes. I don't think there's any behavior change for overflow:hidden. Auto/scroll would behave as above.
