I was working under the impression having less major colours is a good
thing. From memory, the icons are done using the HIG palette with some
intermediate colours for gradients and such.

Designers I have met will tell you when doing a design, pick a small
number of colours and stick with them. It creates a feeling of
uniformity throughout a publication or website (or GNOME Desktop).
