Sure, but then they wouldn't be Emacs scrollbars.  XEmacs allows you
to use either Lucid scrollbars or the native ones for the toolkit
you're using; almost everybody[1] uses Lucid, and AFAICR almost
everybody who does care prefers this (actual usage is of course biased
by the choice of Lucid as default).

I suspect that going to native scrollbars would annoy a lot of users.

[1]  Of those who submit build reports, as well as my more or less
inaccurate memory of list posts etc.
