That's not bad, actually... the Green-Purple becomes the hard one to
remember, but Jacob seemed to think they work logically, and they're both
in the cool end of the spectrum... I think I could live with this choice,
what do others think? (In particular, TwoShort and Zoltar?)

I like it. Red=Orange and Yellow=Clear feel like the must-haves to me.
As noted, I can go either way with Cyan.  I tend to put Purple with
Blue by thinking of it in rainbow order as  Violet.  While it doesn't
go with green color wise, I guess I like Jabobs logic on some level:
Purple does feel somehow... fecund.
