There is; but that's based on science, not opinions of designers.

There was this kid in school who was visually impaired and used the high-contrast setting (yellow/black). It would hurt our eyes, but was readable to him.

After that, came the designers that knew better and would not adhere to the default Windows colors. Software needs to be developed quickly, and the accessability options were ones of the first to be cut.
