It's a pity I wasn't present to make my case. :(

​Since I was traveling home and couldn't join:

As Regina said, it is possible to change color now (and I changed the
color in my instalation) however LO needs sane defaults that make it usable
by most people.
It's a bit silly to keep a default color for the dots with terrible
contrast and visibility from the time of Open Office...
The grid is turned off by default already. Anyone that turns it on, is
because it needs to use it as an auxiliary tool. If it's barely visible,
because it is Light Gray on White Background then it becomes nearly useless.
Also the steps to change its color require the user to really dig deep
into the options menu. Should we expect that from a novice user or even an
intermediate user?

You are the only advocate of a darker color and we agreed in the meeting
to keep the light grey. It works perfectly at 100% and just needs
adjustment for other zoom levels.
