X11R6, from the X Consortium, since that is the earliest release of X11
we support.

Users won't use them if we don't purvey them through rgb.txt.  They are
also absent from list-colors-display.

Since Emacs built on any machine is capable of connecting to _any_ other
X11R6 server, advertising such colors will affect Emacs on any system,
not merely systems distributed with X.Org servers older than 2014.  And
I'd contend that such "cured", if you will, X servers constitute, if not
the majority, then a substantial share of the multitude of X servers
presently in use.
