FWIW, I don't think it's confusing at all. :D

However, the stroke color could be enabled even if there is no stroke. It 
should automatically add a default stroke style when a color is selected. 
IMHO, consciously changing the color of the stroke implies that the user 
wants a stroke, so it would be logical to assign one for him.
