Anyone have any experience, or read any articles around best practices with integrating OS accent colors into a design system for customizability? I'm looking at how it affects other colors in your system, adjusting color contrast, matching hues, etc.

Some examples of this: an OS red accent clashing with the red you use for destructive actions. Or another OS accent color making elements you have colored a certain way stand out for a purpose, no longer stand out.

We don't lean on color ever being the only defining factor in anything to imply intent or differences, but it's still a helpful tool along with others. So I'm looking at how to adjust our system to accommodate system accents while still keeping those purposeful differences.

May be something I try to write up an article around myself as I go along.
