No objection being raised on this CfC before the deadline,
I declare consensus. Tab, please add the 'rebeccapurple' color
to CSS Color Level 4?

For the record, Tab asked me to notify Eric because I was
already in the WG at the time he was here. I will do it
later today, not in only on behalf of the CSS WG, but also
on behalf of all of us, his web community.

Congrats everyone!
