I ran colortest on Win7 with 2.7.9, 3.3.5, 3.4.3, and 3.5.0a3.  The first two are the same, the last two are also the same, but with the muted colors noted.  The obvious difference is that for Windows, we changed from tcl/tk 8.5 to 8.6 in 3.4.0.  The same change will happen (I believe) on OSX for 3.5.0.  You might want to try 3.5.0a3 on OSX and see if a) the tcl/tk version has changed and b) if it affects the colors there.  (I believe some people have also installed and run tcl/tk 8.6 with Python 3.4 but I do not know the details.)

AFAIK, tkinter passes color words to tk unchanged and has nothing to do with conversion to rgb and color rendering.  I presume the data for the conversion dict is somewhere in the tcl/tk source. Perhaps Serhiy can commont on this.
