Why is the green channel value for "&green_color" set to 0.94 rather 
than 1.0? Does this affect anything during editing? Or is this just
random default value?

The channel values for the other colors in the list are either 0.0 or

Also, what are the functions in this file for? Why is the blue
not used, but rather only the red and green channel?

These are just GUI colors, used for colored frames around

0.94 probably looked better than pure green, this is
unrelated to any image pixels.
