For print you generally end up wanting to manipulate CMYK + "spot"
colours (i.e. 4 basic inks plus a list of 0 or more custom colour inks
that you asked the printing house to use for the job).

For my part I've always wanted to be able to request a minimum contrast
level - especially in a user-agent style sheet. I'm not sure how that
might look as a CSS rule though.
