This is my point exactly. The people who are opposing adding the option for wide are arguing that there's no reason for an author to change the scrollbar to wide, but they are completely ignoring the cosmetic control.

They are arguing that in order to add a wide option there needs to be some functional reason other than cosmetic... ignoring the fact that there are plenty of other CSS options under the W3C standards that are purely cosmetic, like the scrollbar-color option for example.

It's a flawed logic.
