Ah -- whether it's `contain: paint` or `overflow: clip`, the child elements maintain their "scrollWidth" and "scrollHeight". In that respect, you're not really losing the ability to calculate what the size is for the interior of the container.


It really does feel like it should be 50 and not 100 in that case.

Really, I'd think this should be `overflow: noscroll` instead of `overflow: clip` to be more semantically indicative of what is happening -- you cannot use specific scrolling functionality with it in JS, it is not considered a scrolling container, it is not related to clip-path (which still allows scrolling with `overflow: scroll`: https://jsfiddle.net/dgs71mo5/ and maintains the calculated scrollWidth and scrollHeight of its child elements) -- but I guess that ship has long since sailed.
