I am wondering if at some point I will regret this joke.

Umm, No.

I have noticed this as well, but have not been able to track down why that is the case.

You can't in the mobile UI.
Can you propose the matching text colors to go with the three colors that you proposed?

Right now I use 

		property color darkPrimaryColor: "#303F9f"
		property color darkPrimaryTextColor: "#ECECEC"
		property color primaryColor: "#3F51B5"
		property color primaryTextColor: "#ECECEC"
		property color lightPrimaryColor: "#C5CAE9"
		property color lightPrimaryTextColor: "#212121"
