@bradkemper You're already describing something extremely far away from current implementations; I think it's quite unlikely such a switch would look remotely good on a broad swathe of webpages. I don't think that's a reasonable hypothetical to work within. Note that similarly skeumorphic elements on existing iOS devices, like the date picker, are *not* inline in the page, but rather modal popups, in part because they would not look good on a broad swathe of pages.

If such a future would ever come about, it would be accompanied by some automatic ML-driven re-styling to blend into the color and design of the page, at which point how it treats accent-color is completely out of our hands.
