CSS2.1 still contains both system fonts and system colors:
  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-CSS21-20050613/fonts.html#propdef-font
  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-CSS21-20050613/ui.html#system-colors
so it seems like the specification already meets this request.  If it
does not, could you clarify what it is you are requesting?
