Agreed!

In addition, we have a general pattern now (written into the intro of
the module template) that future specs can expand the definition of
tokens we use in our spec.  This makes issues like the above moot;
just reference <color> in whatever the most recent spec is, and in the
future it'll automatically upgrade.
