sabithpocker has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-ui] [css-color] Tangent on system colors and appearance being both deprecated ==
I am quoting from an [outdated document here](https://www.w3.org/TR/2003/CR-css3-color-20030514/#css-system) (_as it is the only place a reason is mentioned for the deprecation of System Colors_)

> The CSS2 System Color values have been deprecated in favor of the CSS3 UI 'appearance' property for specifying the complete look of user interface related elements.

It now _appears_ that `appearance` won't be taking up this responsibility and this quoted line has been removed from later versions of the document. The reason why System Colors was deprecated and if `appearance` will provide an alternative remains vague as of now.

How do we proceed with scenarios where we have to style elements to look as native as possible?
