... Because it makes much more sense for users. Compare for example,
trying to specify a color such as "pink" using RGB vs HLS. With HLS, it
is easy to think of pink as a somewhat lighened and desaturated red. Now
try describing the same color using RBG: how much blue and green must be
added, and red reduced to obtain pink?
