For the record: I have been a fan of system colours and find certain in =
certain applications they can meet my desire to design in a manner that =
is a) conformant to the remainder of the user's user interface and b) =
maximally accessible to users with certain colour preferences. I agree =
with Patrick's arguments that they do in fact impact accessibility and =
that the proposed replacement in CSS 3 does not completely address the =
void that would be left by removing system colour support. I hope others =
will speak up in favour of retaining them as well, and that the CSS team =
will take these thoughts into consideration.
