Map `rebeccapurple` to `#663399` in SVG/CSS named color list

Project Member Reported by math...@qiwi.be, Jun 13 2014

Issue description

A movement is presently happening in the developer community that wishes to remember the daughter of Eric Meyer by immortalizing her under her favorite color purple: http://discourse.specifiction.org/t/name-663399-becca-purple-in-css4-color

Note that this has not been fully decided/standardized yet, but I figured we could use an issue to track this. Similar issues have been opened for other browsers:

Firefox: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1024642
WebKit: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=133804
