Because only text fields have a concept of "readonly". UI widgets for range
controls do not (they can be disabled, but not left interactive but readonly --
if you think about it, it makes no sense).

There's no way to not have a color set. It's like a checkbox, which is either
checked or not, it can't not have a value at all, or a range control, whose
pointer has to point somewhere, it can't just not have a value.


> -Related to the above the required attribute does not apply to the color state.

Right, it's impossible to not set a value, so it's not necessary to say it's
required.


> -Also in the color state the readonly attribute doesn't apply. Why?

It's not a text field, same as with type=range.
