> I'd like to get feedback about this from somebody who knows about 
the various disabilities that lead various people to seek one or the 
other of these settings. If they are the same, or at least if there is
 no conflict, this kind of merging could be a good thing.

In our experience, they are used for the same purpose, but both are 
not necessarily used by the same people (some use both, others don't).
 Low vision disabilities are too diverse to make sweeping 
generalizations like, "People who what higher contrast text also want 
zero transparency" but it might be okay to generalize an interface 
change such as: "If the only relevant CSS media feature is 
`prefers-increased-contrast` then as the web page author, maybe I 
should make both the color contrast change and the opacity change." 

It's also possible that people just don't use both simultaneously to 
avoid existing implementation bugs, and that they'd enable both once 
the remaining bugs are fixed in first-, second-, and third-party app. 
For example, a popular app that rhymes with Zulu can look bad when you
 enable 'reduce transparency' on tvOS.
