IMHO the color of the text should be represented - working with
multicolored text frames is easier with it. The lack of every possible
funtionality in something isn't the excuse to completely abandon all
functionality. Following that rule you should remove nearly any option
for which a user lacks a feature (like why do we have to use color if we
don't have Pantone? When there's no Pantone support I don't need any
color at all, etc...).
I have just set up a neutral grey background in the Story Editor so
nearly any possible color is visible.
