Dear CSS WG,

Please don't deprecate CSS System Colors. The LC states they're going to be deprecated in favour of appearance. But if appearance isn't in a Rec by then (and this is most likely), then deprecation based on this suggested replacement will be utterly premature (which will hurt accessibility among others). Furthermore, I think the full-fledged styling of a native UI control the appearance property is going to provide will often be too wholesale or even outright inadequate for some purposes where CSS Systems Colors should be used (e.g. when the styled element is not a UI control at all; would you want the very paragraph from the spec example to start looking and behaving entirely like a window?).
