Great questions!  Laura Carlson, Jim Allan and I have been looking at
proposed wording for a new success criterion called "Interactive Element
Contrast (Minimum)".

So far the draft covers color contrast for:

   - important (non-text) information in an image
   - disabled interactive elements
   - borders of input elements
   - focus indicators
   - select indicators

Sounds like we need to add visual presentation of the interactive element
itself.

I'll put some thought into this and draft some proposed language.

Please note, we are in early draft stage.  The LVTF has not discussed this
proposal in detail yet.  I have suggested it as an item for the agenda.
Hopefully we will be able to dive into this discussion this week on our
LVTF call.

And...as Alastair said, the draft we've crafted is here:
https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/low-vision-a11y-tf/wiki/Contrast_(Minimum)

To A11Y & Beyond!
Glenda
