Cyc also has vocabulary for the Munsell color representation scheme:
"The Munsell system of color classification defines colors based upon
three characteristics: hue, brightness (a.k.a. value) and chroma. Every
color has each of these qualities except for neutral colors (i.e.
PureWhiteColor, PureBlackColor, and all shades of PureGrayColor in
between) which do not have hue or chroma, but only brightness."
