| For this you'd need to specify what the percentages are, hue or
| saturation, wouldn't you?

You would have to assume that they are R G and B intensities. Just like
all the others.  But you would have to state that decimal points are
requiered by the apps, since a scale of 1 to 100 is not very big
compared to 1 to 255...
