It is intentional.

The basic idea is that `scrollbar-color` is more a style that you may want to apply to a subtree as a whole, while `scrollbar-width` is more related to specific case of each element, e.g. when there's a list too narrow to accommodate a normal-width scrollbar or you're installing a custom scrollbar on an element thus want to hide its native scrollbar.

I'm not totally sure whether that assumption still makes sense, but it was intentionally done that way.
