We like the idea of determining the color from the SVG, but we won't be able to implement in time for this cycle, and having an explicit color override seems useful. So for now we'll implement explicit color and we'll consider automatic color picking based on the SVG as a fallback when the color is missing as a future extension.

Sounds acceptable to me.  What's the grammar of color=''?  Just hex,
or full CSS <color>?  (Either is fine with me.)
