I've seen things as outlandish as introducing new units to css just to avoid changing the root problems with the default implementation of vh/vw, both on desktop and mobile. Why don't we implement something like the box-sizing rule, but for scrollbars, to switch whether or not the scrollbar or chrome is considered a part of the viewport or not? There doesn't _need_ to be a debate on how vw/vh should work if the individual user can decide for themselves.

Call it something like "viewport-box" maybe, and have the options be like "chrome-(inside|outside), scroll-(inside|outside)", with chrome-ouside & scroll-inside being the default as it is now. No worrying about backwards compatibility, just make the current implementation the default and put the onus on the user.
