I would like to suggest that all libreoffice components (but especially Writer and Calc) include the option for the user to reverse the light/dark areas of the display. That is, I would like to be able to have light text/menus on a dark background. Graphics could be displayed as they are, with a narrow white border around them.
This would significantly reduce eye strain, especially in low light environments. And AFAIK it is a feature that macrosloth does not have!

Current behavior: black text shown on white background

Here is a possible image of a reversed light/dark screen
Here is an example of what a reversed dark/light screen could look like.
I am certain that you could make it look at lot nicer than this though!
ok, now it's clear what you aim.

johnson: this request looks to be the same as bug 98032. Do you agree?
Buovjaga: If it's not a dupe, please assign it to meta High-Contrast. Thanks!

I don't think so. It appears that the other person is referring to high contrast, and I was referring to swapping dark and light for less eye strain, especially in low lighting conditions.
Those are not the same.

Well, the request in the other report was super close to your image sketch:
I expect the (none-)page area to be black, the text to be yellow, page borders to be white (with high-contrast-#1 theme)."
The usefulness of this separate report should be evaluated by the UX team.
Linux os/DE VCL backends already provide the request--just not for Windows
The user interface would come from the WDM which unlike UWP has limited support for theming--hence no support currently for Windows 10 "darkmode".
Setting this dupe of bug 118320 as the mishandling of High Contrast bug 98032 is a different facet of the theme being passed from Windows os/DE.

Providing a second inverted application color "scheme" might cause additional issues. And, Application colors does not address all elements of the UI--notably missing are the listbox & text entry fields.
Better to work out how to handle UWP provided color theming as suggested bug 118320
