http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-color/#named-colors says this:
  16 of CSS’s named colors come from HTML originally: [...]. Nearly all of  
the
  rest (save two special values, transparent and currentcolor) come from one
  version of the X11 color system, used in Unix-derived systems to specify
  colors for the console.

There is one value which is neither coming from HTML, nor an X11 color,  
nor one of the 2 special values: rebeccapurple

I suggest amending the text to:
  [...] ((save two special values, transparent and currentcolor, and one  
memorial value, rebeccapurple) [...]

Alternatively, if we don't want to single out rebeccapurple, the following  
phrasing makes the list of exceptions non exhaustive:
  [...] ((two special values are transparent and currentcolor) [...]
