Please don't use meta theme-color. 

Financial Times' theme color is "salmon pink" (#fff1e0), but FT's logo must use black letters. 

FT's logo is:

http://image.webservices.ft.com/v1/images/raw/fticon:brand-ft?format=jpg&bgcolor=fff1e0&quality=highest&source=example

and for Safari's icon it should be:

http://image.webservices.ft.com/v1/images/raw/fticon:brand-ft?format=svg&source=example

but theme-color makes it look like:

http://image.webservices.ft.com/v1/images/raw/fticon:brand-ft?format=svg&tint=fff1e0,fff1e0&source=example


For this case Safari requires theme-color to be changed to black, but that would make the entire UI of Chrome for Android black, which is also unacceptable.
