I am very skeptical of this method as a whole.  Why would one want to use
brand names?  It could be that I am thinking of the wrong definition of
brand names here but wouldn't this simply force people to advertise on their
website?  Would there be a central repository for all of these color charts?
how would my browser know that "GM" is brown and not blue, what would happen
if there were several people who wished to register a similar colour?  how
would this support other languages?  last time I check there is very little
support out there for html written entirely in mandarin.  no this scheme
seems to be a joke.  hex is the best way to describe colors.  this very
important announcement seems to be very important to ignore.

I agree.  There are already enough (very simple) ways to specify the
color in a web page.  Adding another will accomplish what exactly?  I
would assume that no browsers currently support your new method, which
probably means it is no good for backwards compatability (and no good
for current browsers for that matter).  It sounds like you are just
trying to pat yourself on the back.

I don't entirely understand what exactly it is that you think your color
scheme can accomplish that can not be done with current methods.  Do you
have a specification or recommendation for this method?  You didn't give
any reference to a website that would contain more information, which
leads me to believe you don't have one.

Perhaps I am missing something... or perhaps there is simply nothing to
miss.
