Worse still than the issue of where on the continent pumpkin orange or lemon 
yellow is located, is what is done about that big hole between, say, pea 
green and forrest green, and that overlap between purple and violet... in 
other words much of what make a profile effective is the hole and overlap 
corrections, and I can't imagine how those would be visually represented so 
that they could be understood.
