    I'm sure if they knew they were going to make so many varieties they'd put a little more thought into the color scheme. To me, it'd make more sense that the lighter the color, the easier it is to press, while the color represents how smooth the press is (where red would be completely smooth and purple would have a very distinct actuation). I guess grayscale could be used for the "clacky" keys.

    Cherry introduced their main switches over a number of years. The range evolved over time - there wasn't really a pre-determined colour coding strategy.

    MX Blacks and Blues started in the 80s, along with Whites and Greys (I think) - and even they spanned about five years iirc. MX Browns launched in the mid 90s and Reds are fairly recent - only seven or eight years old.

    Even worse, Cherry already HAVE both an MX White switch and an MX Clear switch. The MX White is high-strength clicky tactile switch, and the MX Clear is a medium strength tactile non-clicky switch. This makes the MX RGB White not a counterpart to it;s non-RGB cousin, unlike the rest of the MX RGB range.
