Related notes:

1. The other superclass of scrollbar is range. A range is a widget
representing a range of values that can be set by the user. This
describes scrollbar adequately.

2. In the case of select, making a selection from a set of choices
does not necessarily mean a widget is an input field. A menu is
a select; not an input. Widgets which are both (e.g. listbox) can
subclass both.

3. At the moment, input does not have any unique supported states
and properties to be inherited by subclasses. However that could
change. For instance, perhaps required and/or readonly would be
appropriate properties for all inputs. Scrollbars and some of the
subclasses of select (like menu) cannot be readonly or required.
