Yes, you've been missing the brain Smile | :)

A lot of color perception happens beyond the sensors. Why do we put color names where we put them? How much does that differ? There's an ongoing debate on how much this is cultural and how much genetic, and how much of the cultural part is linguistics.

One "teaser" can be found here: here[^]

some more[^]

Moooaaaaar!!![^]

But beyond that, the only thing I would like to add:
Wouldn't it makes sense to grant white full color rights for additive, and black full color rights for subtractive color generation?
