The WG resolved[1] to accept the following proposal (presented in [2]).

In 11.1.1, in the description of the values of the 'overflow' property, make
the following changes:

   : scroll
   :   This value indicates that the content is clipped and that if the
   :   user agent uses a scrolling mechanism that is visible on the
   :   screen (such as a scroll bar or a panner), that mechanism should
   :   be displayed for a box whether or not any of its content is
   :   clipped. This avoids any problem with scrollbars appearing and
   :   disappearing in a dynamic environment. When this value is
   :   specified and the target medium is 'print', overflowing content
   :   may be printed. <ins>When used on table boxes, this value has the
   :   same meaning as 'visible'.</ins>
   : auto
   :   The behavior of the 'auto' value is user agent-dependent, but
   :   should cause a scrolling mechanism to be provided for overflowing
   :   boxes. <ins>When used on table boxes, this value has the same
   :   meaning as 'visible'.</ins>
