Who was it that said "The great thing about standards is that there 
are so many of them." ?

My standard has always been black. With the upcoming generation of 
serial digital serial interface chips, bit rates from 270 - 1485 
Mb/sec can exist on the same connector. There are routers today that 
can handle HD and SD in the same matrix. Just as we don't worry about 
the line standard (525/60 or 625/50) in standard definition, I can't 
find any advantage to "overloading" cable color with particular 
signal types. Should there be different colors for 720P and 1080P?
