So it's only meant as color picker to define a new standard color?

This would be a great improvement over the present menu and

There are just a few questions open I can't understand from your video:

When clicking on the round button at the side of the RGB and HSB values 
(do you want to add this for CMYK too?) it seems that this keeps the 
entry constant during selection of any point in the large color field.

When you move the focus on the small color bar at the side of the color 
area the fixed values seem to move.

Do you want to add a description to these buttons (or did you already) 
to explain to the user what happens when he clicks on them?

By the way: Did we already implement any bugzilla keyword or wiki page 
pointing documentation team (including help creators) and UX to areas 
they should know of?

Best regards
