I think clipka's point is that you would use the vector format with the 
linear colour identifier, and the hex format with the sRGB identifier. 
That makes perfect sense to me, because if you're tinkering with 
something like <1,.4,.7> you probably want that to be a linear colour 
(ie green is 40% of maximum brightness) - unless you can do the sRGB 
conversions in your head :-)
