Default Steeping Grains and Scaling Recipes

I am an extract brewer, but I like to steep specialty grains to give my beer some other flavors/colors. If I want to scale down a big recipe (say 10 gal to 5 gal) do I need to scale the specialty grains too? Or just the malt extract and hops?

I would scale down the steeping grains, too.
