The text of web embeds on Canvas sometimes takes on low-contrast color in dark mode

I have observed an issue with the canvas feature. It appears that the background color of some websites is subordinate to the canvas background, so that when the base color scheme setting is dark, the page is typically not readable.

This is reproducible in restricted mode with all custom CSS disabled.

Steps to reproduce

Expected result

The webview foreground is readable against the background.

Actual result

The background takes on the dark mode background color, almost as though the webview itself is transparent.
