This seems fair and sensible. My main point was that being monochromatic 
(i.e. black) is conformant, and was an attempt to challenge the 
statement about character color "sometimes being a recorded property." I 
don't see any Unicode character properties that identify color, only 
character names, which don't carry property information.
