--- Comment #1 from Michael[tm] Smith <mike@w3.org> ---
We're not going to change this.

The spec is literally *defining* something called (verbatim) "a simple colour".
It's a term of art, marked up with <dfn> in the spec.

It's not defining something called "a notation of a simple color" or something.

I know you mean well by filing bugs like this one. But they're frankly just a
nuisance.

If you ever happen to find substantive problems in the spec, please by all
means do file bugs for them. But reports like this one are very much unwelcome.
It consumes time and energy to respond to them that could much better be spent
on other things.
