Such as converting colours to six digits automatically without the developer
having to worry about using some special mixin, and having to keep worrying
about it. Indefinitely.

No. As I said, it appears it can apply to other things, including regular
background colours.

The whole point of this bug is that we shouldn't have to worry about when to
use #fff or #ffffff in the first place. Because as a rule, nobody ever does -
we write whatever, we check how it works cross-browser, and then if something
goes wrong, we track it down and fix it. This bug is to make it so that
slightly less can go wrong. That's all.

By using RL as opposed to a mixin, we can ensure that it is all resolved such
that nobody will ever have to worry this particular issue again.
