Thanks for the additional comments. After thinking about it, and given the comments, it does seem that this might be the cleanest, and most extensible proposal:

accent-color: <color>+

The first provided color would be the "foreground" color, the second is the "background", and for some controls (`<range>`?) there might be a use for the 3rd+ color. Having foreground come before background seems logical to me for some reason, but we can also reverse that.

I am in the process of sketching out more-specific text, control by control, and I'll publish that here soon.

Side note: at the CSS weekly call, it was suggested that Google Docs aren't great for publishing documents like this (due to inaccessibility in some parts of the world, and risks of loss if Google goes under), so I've converted the doc I linked above to an MD file [here](https://github.com/mfreed7/accent-color/blob/master/study.md). There is still the risk that GitHub goes under, but then this comment will go with it.
