I don't like the assumption that the colors will be high contrast. You can use Windows High Contrast Mode (or similar browser extensions) to force any color scheme you want, including soft-contrast ones.  People with migraines or concentration difficulties might want to impose a subdued color scheme, as could anyone trying to create a consistent reader mode or night mode.

If "high contrast" is in the name, then devs will think they are being helpful by applying high contrast colors. What is really needed in this case is for the website styles to get out of the way and let the user-selected colors do their work.
