imo, don't recommend a set.

people should create the colors they need.

most of the time a document should not have more than 3 or 4 colors defined.
and most of the time, you're not really free in choosing the colors to 

you should rather teach the people how to find matching colors (cf. 
extras > color wheel).

people who need a color set, should know which set they need.
