Why are "ACTIVE" labels gray instead of bright yellow?

We have had some customers advocate very strongly to make "ACTIVE" labels yellow, understandably, although there is a reason we use gray for these files: they are commonly placed on the desktop where you may want to decorate according to your own taste.  For example, many filers like to use multi-colored top-tab folders on the desktop in a file sorter for action files (click here to see video). The gray "ACTIVE" labels are a neutral color and can be applied to the bright colored folders universally on the desktop.  Another person may want to use folders that are a particular color to match the desktop and room environment, say bright yellow, red, or green for desktop action files (again the gray "ACTIVE" labels will always be compatible).  Meanwhile, the color-coded labels inside the reference filing system indicate the lifespan and function of documents, as opposed to action files.
