Well, there is an inherent problem with what you said.  Great I may 
know how to increase read to become pink under HLS, but the problem 
no lies in determining what Red is?

I another color model is added I'd hope that it would be in line with 
L*a*b rather than anything else, since if I recall correctly, this 
model is capable of representing the widest range of colors.
