> So maybe a better compromise would be to add a `prefers-contrast: other` value, instead of forced. This would be used if the user agent is in forced color mode, but the forced color mode cannot be clearly defined as either high or low contrast.

That's a good description of what Windows High-Contrast mode allows users to do.  The actual colours aren't always an extremely high contrast. The pre-set colour palettes provided all have very high-contrast,  but the feature allows users to specify their own palette. So it's possible to use Windows "high-contrast" mode to specify your own _very low contrast_ palettes.  Light brown on beige, for example.
