Thanks Topher, that's what I think, too. The more I ponder this, the more I keep coming back to exactly what I started with. So, I've decided not to change it.

Zoltar:  Yeah, the more I thought about it, the more the purple/green transition jumped out at me as well as indeed too jarring, and the purple to blue and cyan to green are both next to each other -- I was also leaning more toward your original mapping more and more when discussing it last night with others as well.  Zolter think Emperor make wise decision.
