Steps to reproduce

Consider a range input in a wrapper:

  <input type="range"/>

Set a custom property on the wrapper and use it on the actual range input - this works as expected:

section {
  --base: #ff6f00;

input {
  border: solid 2px var(--base);

However, using the same custom property on the track, thumb, fill doesn’t work:

input::-ms-thumb, input::-ms-fill-lower {
  background: var(--base);
input::-ms-track {
  border: solid 2px var(--base);

We could set the color property on the range input to the --base custom property and then inherit it on the track, thumb and fill and use currentcolor instead. However, I often want to have the color property on the track set to transparent in order to remove the ticks.
