Good morning all,

I agree with Andrew. If we want to avoid misnomer, then let's go with "contrast" or "sufficient contrast". But by all means, let's no go to "luminosity contrast".

I understand it's the proper way to name what this is, but I do not know of a single accessibility expert/specialist/wizard/ninja/guru/insert your title here that ever refers to SC 1.4.3 or 1.4.9 that way. If we want to be understood by the average web developer, let's forget about technical purity and use terms the common developer understands.

Sorry I can't be with you this week, we ran into a bit of a squeeze on our current project. 

/Denis
