TBs TechPoll 38 (Results) - Red colored track inserts, or what?

We have a few been delayed with a few polls, but I'll try to catch up!...

Today the results for a poll running last May, where TBs readership was inquired about their favorite color for the new rubber track insert part (bb606), if they could chose a new color for this part.

The color choices available, were somehow limited by those available as rubber colors in the LDraw library.
The clear favorite and winner was 'black', followed by 'Light Bluish Gray', and surprisingly 'Red' which is the color actually being released, got in third place.

Despite not available in the poll choices, many referred in the comments to prefer 'Dark Bluish Gray'!
Would it have been in the options available, and it eventually had win, besides the lack of contrast when used with the respective tread's most common color available.

I don't think there is much chance that these rubber parts will be sold individually, when The Lego Group can't even produce enough Power Functions L-Motors or Servo Motors to meet demand.

They're also listed at LE US
Were already available before, but currently out of stock.
Delivery expected to end of September or early October.

Unless these inserts are exclusive to LEGO Education (and I believe they're not), I don't see a reason for limited general availability: unlike PF elements, these don't contain complicated electric and mechanical parts.
