Hello WebKit devs,

I am implementing the accent-color CSS property in Chromium, and I would
like to hear WebKit's position on the feature.
Chromestatus entry: https://chromestatus.com/feature/4752739957473280
Spec: https://drafts.csswg.org/css-ui-4/#widget-accent
CSSWG spec issue: https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/5187

The accent-color CSS property allows web developers to specify a color
which is used to paint the "accent" parts of certain form control elements.
For example, "accent-color:red" makes checkboxes appear red instead of the
default blue.
In Chromium, these are input elements with type=checkbox, type=radio, or
type=range, as well as progress elements.
On MacOS, WebKit already uses the accent color specified by the user in
System Preferences to paint type=radio and type=checkbox. The accent-color
CSS property would make the form controls paint just like they do with the
System Preferences accent color, but specified in CSS instead of in System
