I just did a writeup on facebook about the shitty use of LED's in games. And lately it seems to be an epidemic. So either we are getting a lot of newbs in the hobby, that other newbs are trying to encourage. Or the blind community has really taken a liking to pinball in the last year. I can't believe the amount of colortrash out there.
And no, it's not a matter of opinion. There is a science behind light distribution and how it reflects off other colors, both reflective, as well as translucency.
It's like cooking. If you want to make a cake with mayo instead of eggs. Sure...you can do it. But expect people to give you rave reviews when they are puking because of what you did.
