It would be nice if any work in this area took into consideration
existing efforts by Julien Danjou (CCed) in lisp/net/shr-color.el
(see e.g. user options shr-color-visible-luminance-min and
shr-color-visible-distance-min and function shr-color-visible).

For example, the library may end up either duplicating existing core
logic, or prove sufficiently useful that it is moved to a less
SHR-specific location (I'm just speculating).

FWIW, there has been some discussion of colour distances in bug#25525
and bug#30295:
