I'd like to add that the highlighting on dialog boxes suffers from this
too. So, if I try to launch the Unsafe Browser (for example), the
highlighting on the "Launch" or "Exit" button when I hit TAB is _very_
subtle, just a thin outline round the edges. If I had a HiDPI screen or
vision problems it would be almost impossible to see the difference.

I think this contrast, uniformity and visibility issue is a problem that
needs to be addressed system-wide. Perhaps it could be viewed as an
"Universal Access/Accessibility" matter to encourage progress.
