Sounds like a good reseach. But maybe you can add some general meanings
to the colors that will maybe more effective for choosing colors for
specific tasks. For example the color red as seen at has a warning symolism. So if someones
want to draw a special attention red would be a good first choice.
Also the Artwork guys and girls (see ) are aware of the meanings and
have allready have that in mind if they produce Icons and graphics.
There are also some rulings (lets say Designguide) how the fedoraproject
uses colors.

Yeah, thats the same idea behind as with the Sony Bravia adds.

Maybe you want to add some of those and other videos to your research, too?!
