One reason why *low contrast* gets chosen is that for some people with dyslexia, high (or even normal) contrast gives the impression that letters are shining / glimmering, which makes things hard to read. Low contrast (and / or light-on-dark) mitigate that effect. I don't know where the threshold in terms of contrast would be, though. @MurakamiShinyu, would you (or Yumi) have some information about that?
