No, most Emacs users want text they can read.  If guessing colors
can commonly render unreadable text (and it can), the default should be
no color.  There is very little downside to not having color, and it
can be manually enabled.  But having unreadable colors is relatively
difficult to disable, because one can't read the help information in order
to find out how to disable it.
