One more thing,

Wouldn’t it be better if the starting color was the current color rather then black?

Well, I wasn't sure that there would be any advantage to that (since the current color was already displayed).
It doesn't seem more likely that people would want a color close to the old; if they mind enough to want it
changed, they usually want something completely different. So any starting point seems as good as any other.

If the Board dialog did contain nothing for each color than this button, the sensible thing to do would
be to start them in the default color of the option they control, so that people could just OK it to reset.
But because of the way this has evolved we have redundant text-representation and reset buttons
outside the picker dialog, and resetting by opening the dialog first is only cumbersome.
