I'm not overly enthusiastic about adding color to the manual: I'm not certain how it will look in a printed pdf (many people print the docs) or in the info files. We obviously need to use color in the doc section about color, and the red staff-lines in Ancient notation will show up as black anyway in print, but I'm worried about adding color to the main manual.
As you may already have noticed, I added colors according to Kieren's suggestion in GIT. Based on my experience from writing research articles, colors in the
figures is just positive, as long as you make sure that
- No colors are too light so the figure is readable also when printed in B/W. - You use also other methods to distinguish between different cases, as we do here with the note head shapess, so no information is lost when you print in B/W.

For this specific case, I expect the printed version to be just as readable as the old purely black version, since all the colors are dark enough. For the on-line
version it's a clear impovement, in my opinion.
