So far I've read some compelling reasons for making monochrome demos.

noby: I'm suggesting 0010 1010 to be added to your list.

A monochrome-ish favorite of mine: moralhardcandy (nice pouet ID btw)

Just code for the C64 which has a pre-selected palette of colors that go nicely together and cannot be changed.

You're seriously underestimating the ability to abuse the c64 palette. Source: 90% of cracktros/demos made in the 80s.

Why usually new-media / videoart creators from artschools start in monochrome style and keep it for many years.. hmm... answers above ^^^ :)
Demoscene got born in explosion of all possible color combinations, but there are clearly many examples demo designers know/feel the answers for a long time too....

every demo should have a "colorist" who excels at color aesthetics :)
