> We used to have this in CSS Color 3, [`flavor`](https://www.w3.org/TR/2003/CR-css3-color-20030514/#flavor) which dated to the time when iMacs had brightly colored cases. It was dropped for lack of implementor interest.

Oh wow thanks! This is interesting, and you're right, I remember it well - the majority of web-capable devices were beige or iMac G3s then.
I poured over every possibly-related discussion I could find, but obviously didn't encounter this 'flavor' system colour
