If we are trying to normalize how and where UAs apply color, then I would say that goes way beyond what I would expect from a property called `accent-color`. Sounds more like it should be called `normalize-form-colors`. 

In my view, we should recognize that most/all UAs use a very limited color palette of colors that are not black or white (or shades/tints of the main colors), and that _those_ are the colors we want to change for theming. To go beyond that to insist of where colors go in the native control seems like something else altogether. For that level of control, there should be part selectors. But for changing the main blue of a UA's control to a corporate red, that should be a simple thing that you should be able to do with `accent-color` (or `accent-colors`) without worrying that it will otherwise change the overall design of the native control.
