I disagree that this is something that would be misused.  If a website design really works for both light and dark styles, as implemented by any current or future browser, it's unlikely to break for anything in between.  I think the worse issue is in not allowing authors to create forward-focused stylesheets that also respect user preferences.

I'd go one step forward, and argue that `any` should include _any_ user agent color scheme, including ones that haven't yet been standardized in CSS with a particular name.

A keyword like `any` is clear enough.  But we could go with `color-scheme: whatever` or `color-scheme: as-you-wish` if you really don't want anyone using it without thinking about anything other than character counts.

> A user can always force a page into supporting a color scheme

But this isn't about users _forcing_ color schemes.  This is about authors stating that this page or *section* of a page, can safely be styled in any color scheme.
