We find in the HTML4.0 spec 

http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/types.html#h-6.5.1 :

"Don't use color combinations that cause problems 
for people with color blindness in its
various forms." 

I think that this is an accessibility problems
that may be addressed in more detail in
the accessibility authoring guidelines.
