> I agree that CSS access to form control internals is needed, which would allow us to style specific parts of the form controls with the existing `background-color` or `color` properties.

I think this is a good point. We are trying to define a property called `accent-color` that specifically is being related to colors of form controls and nothing else at the moment. These aren't really "accent colors" if we are explicitly defining them, these are form control colors. I don't look at the paint on the side of a house and think "that's a nice accent color" -- I think "that's a nice color".

This property is semantically being used incorrectly. It's one thing to use `accent-color` to define an accent color which can *also* apply to form controls as an accent color, but it's quite another to simply decide that this is what CSS is going to call its form control color styling property.
