For Plain users, yes; obviously they need to think about which special to use.  Now if "color.sty" picks up the page size set by the TeX Live installer and uses it to set \pdfpagewidth/height, then that /might/ be reasonable, but I still think that a package that, /prima facie/, is concerned with implementing colour has no business interfering in page geometry.
