The goal is to be able to paint something on the screen as soon as
possible. Using complex colours could make the task complex. For
example, Chrome Android uses the background_color information to create
an Android native View while Chrome is loading. Unless we can use
gradients with Android, we would need to re-implement gradients outside
of Blink.
