The CSS WG made a privacy review request for CSS Color Module Level 4.

Would anyone be willing to take on this review?

The CSS WG identified a potential risk - System Colors [1]. They note that feature previously existed, and was deprecated, for example in CSS Color Module Level 3 [2] which is a W3C Recommendation.

They note that they now find that they are unable to fully deprecate the feature, partly due to Web-compatibility and partly due to an interaction with an accessibility feature, forced colors mode [3] which is defined in a different specification. However, they also note that have continued to deprecate some little-used colors[4] and made the interpretation of the remaining ones more generic.
