I am enjoying the new additions to mat-form-field but I am unable to use them in my project because the background color of the input is too hard to select. I've tried all manner of css selectors and between inline styling, I have yet to find a way to change the background-color or any documentation stating how the theme it. I am aware that input allows for the underline, and the label, but in this case, there is no way to change the fillColor. I propose maybe something like

<mat-form-field appearance="fill>
<input matInput name="name" fillColor="accent"> 


<mat-form-field appearance="fill" fillColor="accent">
<input matInput name="name>

This change will greatly improve the versatility of matInput, and allow for matInput to be used in a variety of applications!
