Can sections 4.1 and 4.3 be merged, then?  Suggested title ‘Color
keywords’.  We could still start by listing the 16 HTML colours (or 17
CSS 2.1 colours, = HTML + orange) given that they include the most basic
colours.

Having a single section makes it clearer that there's no distinction in
their treatment as far as css3-color is concerned.

If a motivation for having separate lists is to give information on
backwards compatibility, then I'd have thought it more valuable to
identify the colour specifications supported by CSS 2.1
(http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/syndata.html#color-units)
than those supported by HTML attributes.
