There's a quite important issue that you haven't mentioned in your article...
A lot of people have porblems seeiing colours. I am 100% colourblind (this means I see everything in grayscales) I can't see any difference between the flag of France and Belgium (which is my own country!) :)
I'm not sure about the stats, but I thought I've read that 40% of the males are partial colourblind (or have at least slight problems to distinguish colours) and only 6% of females (and, as you know, there a far more men than women that use the internet).
I hope I've made a small contribution to your article and I also want to excuse for my poor English :)
