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

== [css-scrollbars-1] scrollbar-width should be inherited ==
[scrollbar-color](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-scrollbars-1/#scrollbar-color) is inherited, yet [scrollbar-width](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-scrollbars-1/#scrollbar-width) is not. (These are currently the only two properties in the scrollbars spec.) Is there any reason why these two related properties differ in inheritance?

The lack of inheritance is inconvenient for web devs wishing to ensure consistency in appearance site-wide, necessitating either excessive specific CSS selectors or the dreaded `*`.
