Can sections 4.1 and 4.3 be merged, then?  Suggested title ‘Color
keywords’.  We could still start by listing the 16 HTML colours (or 17
CSS 2.1 colours, = HTML + orange) given that they include the most basic

Having a single section makes it clearer that there's no distinction in
their treatment as far as css3-color is concerned.
