Oh apologies, you are right. Still odd I agree.
If you just need coloured text, consider:
“BBCode-lite” without the need to install a plugin …
Adds a simple control (palette icon) to the Composer to facilitate colouring of the foreground and background of text
Select a word or text
Hit the palette control
It will be wrapped like so: [wrap=color color=# bgcolor=#]word[/wrap]
Replace the #s with html-compatible colour names, e.g. “red”, “grey” … experiment.
NB Same caveats apply as to BBCode: can be used to hide text.

No, I migrated from phpBB to Discourse. So I have a lot of BBCode in thousands of posts. I only have the discourse-bbcode plugin installed - and always was wondering about the differences.
From having a little investigation it seems that it was kept as two plugins so people could have the option of having just the simpler colour version without everything else included as well.
