My action from TPAC for @frivoal was to list the other known 
platform-specific contrast-related  settings.

1. Android has an "increase contrast" setting that is similar to iOS's
 "darken colors" or macOS's "increase contrast". Controls and text 
colors throughout the system increase the foreground/background 
contrast ratio. To my knowledge, Android does not expose this to the 
Web (neither does iOS or macOS yet).

2. Windows implemented their own vendor-prefixed 
`[-ms-high-contrast](https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh465764.aspx)`
 and 
`[-ms-high-contrast-adjust](https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh441137.aspx)`
 media feature that is very specific to the platform mapping. See the 
MSDN doc links above for more info.
