For the CSS named colors from X11, those are all ASCII-only in any case so the distinction (while useful to clarify) has no observable effect unless more are added later which use full Unicode.

The `color()` function can refer to an ICC named color profile. But I just checked [ICC 4.3 specification, section 10.15 namedColor2Type](http://www.color.org/specification/ICC1v43_2010-12.pdf); the prefix, suffix, and color root name are all clearly stated to be `7-bit ASCII`.
