Current:

Section 2.2.1, Conformance Classes: Visual user agents that support the
suggested default rendering 
User agents, whether interactive or not, may be designated (possibly as a user
option) as supporting the suggested default rendering defined by this
specification. User agents that are designated as supporting the suggested
default rendering must implement the rules in the rendering section that that
section defines as the behavior that user agents are expected to implement. 

Proposed:
Add the following sentence to the end of this paragraph.

A user agent or assistive technology may override the suggested default
rendering (e.g. color, font-size, focus style) for the sake of accessibility,
readability, or other personal preference.

Reasoning:
The first sentence of this section seems to imply that user agents can offer
user preferences around default rendering. The proposed sentence simply
emphasizes that point and gives some examples of why this may be desirable at
times.
