No you are missing the difference between standards and legally required safety guidelines.
It is a legally required safety guidline to make sure all live wires are secured and grounded with no bare exposures.
It is a standard to use red wiring for live and white wiring for grounds. Not legally required
However it is legally required that you have the legend of the wiring mapped out, But you can CHOOSE to not use the standard. You can CHOOSE to use green for live and black for ground. Just as long as you meet the legal guidline of mapping it.
Do you understand the difference between a standard and a legally required safety guidline?
