> If the high contrast pair of foreground/background colors that a web author picks accidentally makes the background match the border, you may accidentally be making things worse.

not necessarily worse, provided that the foreground/background the author picked is high-contrast. the forced border would not show, but as that border is only there to ensure contrast (and not to make things fatter/bolder), the end result would still be a strong contrast, arguably.

but yes i can see how all this is far more nuanced than a simple true/false statement would allow for (which is likely why this hasn't been standardised until now).
