Should Chevy bring back classic color names?

In 1969, we had colors such as:
LeMans Blue
Daytona Yellow
Tuxedo Black
Hugger Orange
Dover White
Cortez Silver
Rallye Green
Garnet Red
Olympic Gold

The past few years Chevrolet has been dabbling ever-so-slightly in classic color naming.
Such as...
Hugger Orange returning on Camaro in 1999.
Daytona Susnet Orange Metallic & LeMans Blue Metallic on Corvette in 2005.

Do you think more classic color names should return for the 2009 Camaro?

I like these renditions. Thanks to 2002BlackSS on LS1Tech for these recolors.

P.S. No negative comments on the stripes please. I posted to show some of the colors mentioned.
