I think, I understand now. I was confused about the difference between `<color>{1,4}#` and `<color>#{1,4}` (I didn’t even notice that they have different meanings).

The value definition syntax is quite confusing in this aspect. For example, in `<color>{1,4}#`, there are two distinct multipliers (first space-separated 1–4 times, then comma-separated 1 or more times), but in `<color>#{1,4}`, there is only one multiplier (comma-separated 1–4 times).

In other words, when `{1,4}` doesn’t have `#` to its left, it defaults to *space-separated*, and if `#` doesn’t have `{…}` to its right, it defaults to *one or more times*. Uh, I barely understand it as I write this. 😔
