Your call, but if you want to change the default value of the `region'
face, it should be done directly in faces.el.

Why isn't it supported?

IIUC it is supported under w32 (also be defining special color names),
so you may want to check what they do there.  I do not know if they set
the faces to use those by default.
BTW, it might be a good idea to try and use the same special color names
whenever possible.
There's no such support under Gtk currently, AFAIK, but I don't think
it's because we don't want it, but because nobody wrote the code for it yet.
