As a color-blind person I was going to ask those questions. I hate
that feeling of being disabled. Last time it happend when KDE device
icons had red/green indicators for mount/unmount state. Concerning
standart, it is possible to make it sutable for the most common color
vision abnormality (protanomals -- people with reduced sensitivity to
the red) that affects 1-2% of male population. It is impossible to
cater to all types.
