Tangerine Tango in Kids' Rooms?

We've been talking up Pantone's color of the year for 2012, Tangerine Tango, in many aspects of home decoration. But we've yet to tackle this question: is tangerine a good option for a baby or kid's room?

One great aspect to this color is that it's gender neutral. On the down side, it's definitely a statement color, so when tastes change it might fall out of favor.

How would you use Tangerine Tango in a child's room? As merely an accent or a major part of the palette?
