A child theme should inherit its parent theme's custom CSS when switching themes

I install a theme and begin customising it with some custom CSS. At some point I realise I need to create a child theme, so I do so. Upon switching to the child theme, all my custom CSS disappears. Not fun.

When switching to a child theme, its parent theme's custom CSS should be inherited if the child theme doesn't have any custom CSS stored already.

Is this not the same problem as theme mods in general? When switching between a parent and child theme and between sibling child themes. So maybe this is a duplicate of #27177?
