Perhaps the media query could inform content when the page is displayed in augmented reality with a display that has an additive brightness effect.  In this case, "Additive" means that black is essentially transparent/invisible and white always has the most visible contrast.  Pages that normally use a dark on light background will likely want to use a light on dark background in this case.

This may not be the ideal for VR immersive displays; however, which can render dark images over light backgrounds.

In both cases, content would likely use a variation of the formatting normally used for touch-optimized phone and tablet interfaces.  Unlike phones and tablets; however, scrolling is not as ergonomic in AR and VR.
