true when the colors are too bright and interfere with other theme colors, i for one disabled any keyword highlighting and dimmed the colors a bit. one could also reduce the saturation to be just a tint apart from normal text color.
biggest benefit i see is one develops a feel for the data flow, kinda hard to explain but you start to watch for color patterns which is easier than looking for words
