RGB isn't enough - not everyone's visual system's response can be
modeled accurately by RGB. (Some people have colour receptors whose
response peaks are at nonstandard frequencies; a few people even have
more than three different colour receptors.)

The only really comprehensive way would be to give the full
frequency-vs-albedo curve.
