Does anyone find these five values to be a useful color space
intersection?
000    00f   0f0   f00  000
black  blue  lime  red  white
(Specified as sRGB, will they render somewhat the same on all
except black and white and greyscale monitors? Is thinking so a
disservice to color and greyscale users? Are any of them grey in
greyscale, say, 2-bit and above? It might be possible to find
a combination/s for background, text, :link, :visited, and
:active, from these five.)

Can the sixteen Windows VGA colors be deprecated, if in essence
CSS1 and CSS2 are correct to not give values to color names?
