Zero contrast sounds like there is insufficient contrast to me…

The requirement is that users can determine that it is there. I don't think there is anything in WCAG that makes it clear, but "sufficient contrast to be perceivable" generally requires being a certain size as well as colour combination.

Has anyone here filed a bug on WCAG or its associated documents for this issue? I think that would be a useful thing to do - so if the answer is no, I'll do it.
