[css3] System colors question

Why exactly have system colors [1] been dropped (or halfway “replaced” [2]) in CSS 3?

I understand that rare use might mean a reason, but still there appear to be valid arguments supporting these keywords (they can help accessibility and usability) as well as probably only minor implementation needs.
