I'm wondering whether it may be used in defface.

Gnus now has a gazillion defface declarations like this:

(defface gnus-group-news-2-empty
  '((((class color)
      (background dark))
     (:foreground "turquoise"))
    (((class color)
      (background light))
     (:foreground "CadetBlue4"))

Which is very general and all, but the colours chosen are usually quite
garish, since (for instance) `light' commonly spans the gamut from white
to gray, so we have to choose colours that pop.

We could start choosing more mellifluous hues by default, and have
color-lab ensure that the text would be readable for all users...  That
is, reduce the fruit salad-ey-ness that Emacs has now.

(domestic pets only, the antidote for overdose, milk.)
