Everyone? The reason I add the question mark is that the first figure in
the book shows the contour plots for each colour of samples chosen from
a standard chart (Munsell stimulus space). Yellow in particular seems to
show quite a spread. Green also shows a considerable variation in hue
(though that was not on your list of bright colours).    (07)
