That's how I initially reacted to this. Because I'm not seeing the conclusion at all. You jumped straight from hypothesis to to conclusion without anything to support it. Why do they have to be colorless? What made you come to that idea?
It's far more likely, in my personal opinion, that their powers were based on their colors. Just as they were in real life (ie "Avak is brown so we have to give him stone powers"), that's probably all the thinking Spiriah gave to it.
And for the record, we do in fact know all of their powers and they do correspond to the colors. I know it's been almost seven years since they were introduced, but their powers were pretty firmly established from the beginning.
