I'd think most users would use Textadept in since their
workflow is probably also in there. In that case, I'd prefer not to have
any glaring display issues. Users using other terminals are probably power
users and wouldn't be put off in changing their scroll bar setting if they
want it.

Even if it does, not everyone has updated to 10.10.
