Duplicated with which tests? I see no boundary test cases for any of the RGB values except for the ones we submitted. Could you point me to some of the files that they are duplicated to? Pointing to the background-color test cases is not accurate because an implementation can implement color and background-color in separate ways and at separate times. We cannot make assumptions how implementers will implement features thus the appearance of duplication in some/many tests.

There are both help links because the first help link is more accurate to what is actually being tested. The second is pointing to the section heading in the TOC. The guidelines need to be updated to clarify that this is a good practice though not a required practice.
