Thanks for trying out!

There might some seldom UX cases, where user don't get the results they 
look for (like modified colors when working on a document created with 
an older version of LibO - especially if the changes are only visible in 
comparison to the old color).

But this is not related to the name of the color palette, so I think we 
can leave this patch as it is now, as the name of the palette is not 
really important in most cases.

If someone stumbles upon a problem, a bug report will probably easy to 
be handled...

Best regards
