That chunk of darker red solid finally turned up and I hung it up on the bottom half of the design wall to see which red I liked better.
I had really thought that I was going to like the dark better, but now I'm not so sure.

Contrary to what I expected, I think the lighter brighter red is the one I'll go with. It really lights up the colors of all those highs and lows, while the darker red seems to dull them down.
Here's one more look at the contrast, along with three more Sand Castle blocks I got done yesterday.
So if red is the new neutral, then bright red is the neutralest neutral? Whichever, I'm going with the bright one.
There. That dither is over. Next!
