Comment (by rianrietveld):

 We discussed this in the #accessibility Slack channel and this is our
 recommendation on the red color:

 Both colors used should have a contrast ratio of 4.5 or more.
 Using the WordPress colors this would be for example #9a2323 and on
 hover/focus #c62d2d.

 The link on hover status needs to have sufficient contrast with the
 background, but not necessarily with the normal link state or with
 neighboring text.
