> There is a compelling accessibility reason to allow for variable scrollbar sizes beyond `auto, thin, none` especially given that `auto` is defined by the platform (i.e., user agent). Pointer device users with motor issues and/or low vision could benefit from scroll bars that appear larger for them or scale with user agent zoom. Easier to "land on" and easier to see.

It seems to me like the user-agent should use larger scrollbars at request of the user, not at the request of the site?
