> How are the proposed Canvas and Text colors different from the CSS2 Window and WindowText colors? Are these expected to be the same colors, but just with better names?

@AmeliaBR It's not very clear what they mean from the spec, but at least some implementations return Window which are not equivalent to the canvas background. So to prevent anything bad happening, we're introducing new keywords.

> If we do bring back the system colors, can we give them nice hyphenated names ("active-link-text")?

Added to the List of Mistakes, because, yeah. That said, since all color names -- system colors, X11 colors, currentcolor -- are following the mashwordstogether pattern, I think we might want to just stick with it here. :/

> I couldn't see any system colors in https://www.w3.org/TR/css-color-3/#css2-system that are equivalent to an input's background color, hence -apple-system-control-background.

Tab and I would be OK to add in Field and FieldText if y'all feel it's needed; we left them out of our original list mainly because MSFT's forced-colors implementation didn't seem to distinguish between those and Canvas/Text, and we were aiming at a minimal set to start. (We didn't want to pull in all of https://www.w3.org/TR/2000/WD-css3-userint-20000216#color and tackle the issue of system colors generally here, just get the minimum set needed to support forced-colors mode. If we were pulling anything out of that draft, though, Field/FieldText would've been it, to correspond with ButtonFace/ButtonText.)
