The CSS Working Group just discussed `[css-color] Change three color names`, and agreed to the following:

* `RESOLVED: Add note to the spec, close issue`

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;emilio> Topic: [css-color] Change three color names<br>
&lt;emilio> github: https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/5284<br>
&lt;emilio> [chris summarizes the issue]<br>
&lt;emilio> chris: I've put a section on the spec explaining the origin of these names<br>
&lt;florian> q+<br>
&lt;emilio> ... I hope that'd avoid people asking to add colors<br>
&lt;emilio> ... I didn't go ahead with deprecating, just recommending them not being used<br>
&lt;emilio> ... Do we want to do this?<br>
&lt;emilio> ... I'm ok-ish with that but I don't think that'd bring much benefit<br>
&lt;emilio> ... There's also navajowhite, which includes `DEAD` in the hex code<br>
&lt;fantasai> I'm in favor of accepting Chris's note and closing the issue https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/5284#issuecomment-713546559<br>
&lt;emilio> chris: leaverou was concerned about us deprecating all named colors including the popular ones<br>
&lt;emilio> ... but I don't think that'd happen<br>
&lt;leaverou> That wasn't what I said lol. I just said "as if the other X11 colors represent what they claim to" (regarding navajowhite not actually looking like the navajo flag)<br>
&lt;leaverou> but yeah, we have data that white and black are *very* popular<br>
&lt;emilio> RESOLVED: Add note to the spec, close issue<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> lol good point lea<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> the fact that "orange" wasn't in the original HTML colors is such a weird historical wrinkle<br>
&lt;TabAtkins> tantek, you're muted ^_^<br>
&lt;fantasai> it's a technical one<br>
