No.  Only "overflow:scroll" and "overflow:auto" produce a scrolling
mechanism.  "overflow:hidden" does not.

Whether or not that scrolling mechanism has any visible component (e.g. a
scrollbar) is _completely_ UA dependent.

An element can be "overflow:scroll", not have any scrollbars, and still
respond to arrow keys to scroll its content.
