It's not the UA's color you're after here, it's the page's own
theming color, right? So theme-color or accent-color might make
more sense.

As a note, an old version of css3-ui used the term 'flavor' for
something similar. Unsure about following that precendent.

As another note, a request for something similar came up on the
CSSWG ML just recently:
In that case it's about retrieving the OS's notion of this color.
