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

== [css-color-adjust-1][mediaqueries-5] Fold `forced-colors` and `prefers-contrast`? ==
Was trying to work out authoring advice for responding to forced-colors mode and drafted up

> Authors are encouraged to simplify the contrast in their pages when '@media/forced-colors' is ''active'', reducing effects such as shadows, fades, blurs, filters, gradients, and image or pattern fills that add complexity to discerning shape outlines.

But what I noticed is that this advice is probably also applicable any time `(prefers-contrast)` is true (i.e. when it is `low` or `high` but not `no-preference`). Which made me wonder if `forced-colors: active` should instead be `prefers-contrast: forced`?
