The Vor are a military caste, their colors are intended for uniforms, and
soldiers tend to have much more uniform body shapes than the general

IIRC, comments from Mark and Miles suggest that the colors were chosen,
with order of choice determined randomly.  The last to choose had to take
whatever remained, such as red-and-green.  It's suggested that the reason
the Emperor's House has red and blue is that Barra went first.
