@dbaron I think the following tag is an indicator that a page is capable of rendering with dark and light:
`<meta name="supported-color-schemes" content="light dark">`

I don't quite understand what you mean by:

>  This would allow UAs capable of doing so to, if they wish, when the system theme is dark and a page does _not_ have this indicator, render the "system" controls as colors as a light theme instead of the dark one.

First you say that there should be an indicator but then you ask for behavior if there is no indicator. Maybe you can rephrase?

> Given that, today, pages all work with light themes, it seems like it would be a step backward to allow pages to do the opposite, and force dark controls/colors when the user has a light system theme.

Why is that? If a UA supports this tag and CSS property, it can do transformations for pages that specify `dark`.
