Luminosity class does affect the colour index for a star so that a main sequence (V) star and a supergiant (Ia) of the same spectral class may not have have quite the same CI but this correction factor is beyond the scope of the syllabus.

 Juicy Studio: Colour Contrast Analyser Firefox Extension
The Colour Contrast Analyser Firefox extension lists colour combinations used in the document in a table that summarises the foreground colour, background colour, luminosity contrast ratio, and the colour difference and brightness difference used in the algorithm suggested in the 26th of April 2000 working draft for Accessibility Evaluation and Repair Tools (AERT).
When an element's foreground and background colour combination fail either the luminosity contrast ratio or the colour contrast algorithm suggested by AERT, the whole row is coloured yellow.
It's important to remember that both the luminosity contrast ratio or the colour combination algorithm suggested by AERT have never been recommendations; they're suggestions by two WAI working groups to help determine whether or not the contrast between two colours can be read by people with colour blindness or other visual impairments.
