In the case of high contrast images especially, people designing accessible websites should have the ability to define fallbacks for individuals who would benefits in those very specific use cases. Having family members with seriously impaired vision where monochromatic browsing is necessary, I know they struggle with things like news websites that rely heavily on visual stimuli to educate their users. While many use Screen Readers and the like, it is hard to guarantee designers are supporting all the proper accessibility tools they should.
