Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-values] Should viewport units still depend on scrollbar width for overflow:scroll? (#1766)

If viewport units act like %s, then they change from being "resolveable at computed-value time" to "resolveable at used-value time". This is a huge change! It means that a lot of uses you might want simply *don't work*; any place that currently has "% acts like `auto`" behavior would give viewport units the same behavior.

We thought it was more useful to have viewport units always be usable.
