Remark about Navigation tabs and the text color options

When tab is selected (has been clicked), it's easy, there are some display options for "selected" tabs
Css class: navTab forums selected
Style Properties: Header and Navigation =>Selected Tab

When tab is not yet selected (hasn't been clicked) but with a mouseover and a popup displayed the color can be controled with this property
Css class: navTab showcase Popup PopupControl PopupContainerControl PopupOpen
Style Properties: Header and Navigation => Navigation Tab
Now when popup is closed (normal state), there's no option to change the text color. Well there are, but none of them work.

Let's have a look inside the template "navigation.css"
    /* ---------------------------------------- */
    /* unselected tab, popup closed */
    .navTabs .navTab.PopupClosed .navLink
        color: @primaryLighter;
        .navTabs .navTab.PopupClosed:hover
            background-color: @primaryMedium;
            .navTabs .navTab.PopupClosed .navLink:hover
                color: @textCtrlBackground;
=> The text color is not controlled by any of the tabs or popups options but directly by global setting of the color palette.

It could have been instead for example:
Style Properties: Popup Menus => Popup Control (closed, hover)
Style Properties: Header and Navigation => Navigation Tab

I think it would have made more sense.
