Just _look_ at the colors, using emacs -Q.  Do the same in an older release
also, to compare.  You should be able to see the problem clearly.

Computer systems vary quite a bit in their color reproduction, and different people can have different color vision, and not just in a "complete red/green colorblindness" fashion either [1].

I'd say we absolutely should try to keep the emacs out-of-box color scheme colorblind-safe, so some people having problems _is_ a reason to change the scheme. It's just an assumption that everyone is seeing what you see may be faulty. font-lock-doc (#8b2252 or so) definitely still looks pretty different to font-lock-builtin (#7a378b or so) on my system. Are the colors actually used on your system even coming out as similar hex values to those?
