It's a matter of legibility.
Well, this automatic brace/parenthesis/bracket matching mechanism does not go off with 'syntax off'. I have tried a thousand commands and never was able to get rid of this. But please remember. It's not a matter of braces matching. I do not want color at all.
You can do ':help color' terminating with ctrl-D instead of <Enter> and will be presented with up to nine items about color.
