As I understand them, these are the main arguments made in **favor** of keeping `prefers-contrast: forced`: 

1. Shortens the media query that would match any combination of forced colors *or* contrast preference: the shorter boolean `@media (prefers-contrast)` as opposed to `@media (prefers-contrast) or (forced-colors)`.
2. Reduces the likelihood that authors will overlook users who have forced colors that don't match either contrast-specific value: `less` (reduced contrast) or `more` (increased or high contrast). The follow-on justification for this (if I understand correctly) is the premise that ~"all users who have either forced colors or any contrast preference will also have a desire for reduced visual complexity, such as removing decorative background patterns."
