>So in Chrome's case, an unchecked checkbox would just use the 'background-color' (and perhaps 'color' for the border?), while a checked checkbox would use the 'accent-color' for the bg and the 'background-color' for the check. If it determines that those two colors, as provided by the author, don't contrast sufficiently, it can fallback to a second 'accent-color' specified, or adjust the specified accent-color lighter/darker, or ignore it and use the default, as desired by the UA.

I would not expect `color` to affect anything but text, and not necessarily text that was several layers deep, like the text in a button in a file upload control. And it would affect borders that were set to currentColor, which wouldn't necessarily be the same across UAs (they wouldn't have been in Aqua). And I wouldn't expect all UAs to use a text glyph for the checkmark or other icons. An image (SVG? Or even a PNG) would be reasonable and also not necessarily currentColor.
