How can you possibly call them contrived, when they are real world 
examples of colour selection applications?

I think it indicates a limitation with the proposed solution, and a 
perfect example of why we need to start with *problems* and *use cases* 
instead of solutions.  We need to devise a solution that fits the use 
cases, not reject use cases that don't fit the solution.
