Previously all composite node classes had their own color theme except
for these 2.

When reading the patch I also got the initial reaction that it was
some kind of back hack, but found this is following how the node
systems color themes work.

To me its fine to add the colors for those 2 composite nodes, but as
you say it would be nice to have color themes for all node classes in
some more generalized (texture nodes, cycles) - but thats a bigger
