Not only.  I also see it for some html mail in an athena frame.

Some colour changes are OK, but the backgound should be untouched.

For example, xilinx.com's Product Design Advisories html mail is
rendered fine.  The colouring is minimal and legible.  The unusual
colour therein is due to html like:  <span style="color:#ec891d;">.

That orange colour works on both black and white.

At least for the headlines where it is used.

But a lot of mail includes background-color: specs, and that is best
ignored.  And perhaps when background-color is seen but ignored,
foreground colours also should be ignored?

So, I guess, a local style is generally preferred, but it is OK to
override short sections with whatever is in the mail.

I am not opposed to having to specify shr/eww's local style, whether via
a css stylesheet or via emacs face customizations.  Even though that
means extra work.
