I agree with that and I really like the pattern of having only few words 
which can be combined with others and also using comparisons. Don't 
forget that in most or many languages, the words for colors are also 
just comparisons, which have been shortened. The most obvious is orange 
(based on the fruit), rose (flower) and many others like copper, desert, 
camel, sky blue, turquoise, and so on and so on.
