That does make sense; we're using that multi-color approach for the report in the example in https://secure.phabricator.com/T12403. But we also put labels per-category, which is possible in that report because the categories are continuous over time to form ribbons, unlike this chart. For this chart, I think the mental model is that all categories are really sub-categories of the parent category "stuff we have worked on", and users only need to distinguish between high-priority and low-priority, hence the shading.

But I agree with Kevin that the point limit seems a lot less useful than the task limit. They're both useful for different reasons, but having been a scrum master and on agile teams for the past 10 years, I find the task limit more fundamental to the processes I've seen.
