Why did Cubase 6 have more color options?

I was watching this youtube video and noticed it seemed MUCH easier to customize colors in past versions of the program!!

Why were things changed? Any chance at getting these options back? What was a nice and easy way to customize your color scheme in Cubase 6 is now much harder and more frustrating to do in Cubase 7, and I dont understand why it was changed.
