I'm not sure what the distinction between a Concept and a Model is...
The point I was trying to make was that a physiologist, a physicist, a
designer, etc., will all use different ways to think of 'Color', because
what they try to represent in their respective models differs.
Abstracting away the goal from the discussion will take out all the life
from the models and render them meaningless and useless.
