No, it's otherwise empty.

There's also no /Library/Colors, and /System/Library/Colors has nothing called 
"Emacs".  The system library colors seem to have deeper structure; they are 
directories not files, contain localizations, and seem otherwise different than 
the simple format that the API emacs calls writes.  I looked for notices of 
changes here but didn't find anything.  I'm no expert in macOS development 

Also, I know that it's the file in ~/Library/Colors that emacs makes because I 
see emacs create it, and if I delete it the problem goes away on the next 
start, so it's not some other file that's bad.  It's like the system library 
can write the file but no longer correctly read it.

I looked for documentation about changes in this area but didn't see anything
