All CSS properties are inheritable, via specifying `property: inherit` as mentioned by @jonjohnjohnson. The "inherited" field just means whether the property inherits by default.

Based on use case analysis mentioned in the spec, we consider `scrollbar-color` to serve the use cases for assigning kind of theme colors to scrollbars, which usually applies page-wise, so it is inherited by default, while `scrollbar-width` is for addressing cases where specific elements may be too small to show a full-width scrollbar, or elements that has custom scrollbar want to hide the default scrollbar, so it is not made inherited by default.

Given the usecases as well as the existence of "workaround" if you really want to inherit that property, I don't think we are going to take this change, so closing this PR.
